It is up to the client to ensure that they have what they should have under their year/model/application. If they are unsure, it is time to send an email with some photos to make sure. The brake kits below require the following;

  • A DRUM spindle for our brakes to work, not a DISC spindle. If you need a stock height drum spindle or a dropped drum spindle, the PRO's can set you up.
  • All studs we use are 14mm x 1.50 and we do not supply lug nuts due to wheels taking a specific lug nut for each application. If you don't know what you need, the PRO's can help. 12mm x 1.50 are available as a special request if you need them for your build.
  • DOT 3 Brake Fluid to be used.

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.
