Description Complete Details
We take for granted a vehicle stopping in an adequate amount of time. Classic Volkswagens don't have brakes that can be counted on, time after time, at least not on today's highways when needed most. It's time to change that. It's time to install an American-Made disc brake kit that exceeds expectations every time. It's time for a set of BAD Series Disc Brakes from your friends at Airkewld.

The GEN 1 set of BAD Series Brakes brings new life to a tried and true disc brake conversion. Any conversion offered by the PRO's will come with all the necessary parts to install; you will only need to supply the brake fluid and furnish the lug nuts required to fit your actual wheels. If you need to know what you need,

5 of 5 Fitment of BAD Brakes with OG Fuchs August 3, 2016
Reviewer: Joni Hamalainen  
I installed your (64-67) complete disk brake kit on my -57 bus (with late
model spindles + IRS application).
The installation was totally painless and everything fits like planned so
Also support was 10+.

I have ORIGINAL early Porsche Fuchs (4.5x15 & 6x15 deep sixes, with hearts)
and before i ordered your brake kit i was asking about the fitting...
You told me that you are not sure if they will fit and probably would need

So just to let you know (if any other customer asks):
The WILL fit and if you put 2mm spacers the original center cups will fit
I ended up to grind 2mm off from axles and now the fit like a glove!
