FAQ - Frequently Asked Question - Disc Brake Edition

Question: Do you make a Wilwood eBrake caliper kit for your BAD Series Brakes?
Answer: No sorry we do not. Wilwood does not make a 3/8" thick rotor equipped caliper.

Question: What size lugs do I need?
Answer: Most brake kits come with 14mm x 1.50 studs pressed in them, so a lug nut that fits those, but in the seat that the wheels need, either acorn conical, ball seat or mag lug. Check the wheel manufacture for specs the wheels require.

Question: I have a dual circuit master on my VW already. Do I still need to install the master cylinder that was sent with my kit?
Answer: Yes, the dual circuit master relies on the springs in the backing plates to syphon the fluid back into the reservoir. The dual circuit disc master has a larger spring to do the syphoning.
