It comes with stainless steel brake hoses and a pair of billet e-brake cable clamps.Why BAD Series Brakes?Are you tired of adjusting your brakes just to have a sub-par brake feel? Do you have to pump your pedal 100 yards before a stop light? Are you trying to fit custom wheels on your ride? Are you tired of buying cheap imported parts? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, the BAD Series Disc brake kit is what you need! My biggest recommendation is for you to only spend your money once. In doing that, make sure you get all the parts needed to do the install right the first time. I would recommend the dual master cylinder kit, the stainless braided brake hoses and the standard calipers for most applications. If you want to what options best fit your needs, check out the article below, What is the best braking system for my VW? Should I install them or have a licensed mechanic install them? If funds allow, have a trained technician install them. Better to have them make sure everything is right and you will not be second guessing yourself. If you are educated and have the correct tools, a back yard mechanic can install them but we do recommend you have a professional take a look after you are done.Pro's versus Con’sWarranty, weight, options, made in the USA and the ability to use any spindle, dropped or stock height. A lifetime warranty on our rotors as well. Some of our competitor?s disc brake kits can be in excess of 76lbs per axle. Our heaviest kit weighs in at 48lbs. Our rotors, Wilwood calipers, brackets, etc. are made in the USA. No one else can say that. The biggest differences are the rotors. The rotors are made of three parts; hub, the bolt pattern and the rotor. All these parts are made in the USA with high end CNC machines. These rotors allow you to use year specific bearing seals and dust caps. The BAD Series rotors have a lifetime warranty as well. If you wear one out, we will send you a new one free, just pay shipping. These hubs allow the interchanging of bolt patterns. What does this mean? If you order them with a Chevrolet 5x4.75 bolt pattern and a few months later you want to install Porsche wheels, you can! All it takes is removing the bolt patterns from the rotors and installing the new ones. Each pattern is sold separately. The last difference is the ability to add a performance caliper to your car. When choosing a Wilwood Caliper, we designed a hub that will work with these calipers. Now you have the ability to upgrade!Note - Because these are RaceReady and do not have e-brake provisions, these brakes are not street legal. To remove ourselves from the liability, we have created rear brackets that do not have holes in them so that the installer would need to drill holes to hang the calipers. This would then make the product altered/customized and would take the liability off of us and allow us to legally sell them. Accessories, check the box to include with your order.
