Type E EZ-Stop Disk Brake Kit 68-70 Bus T2   Price: 535.00 shipped
FINALLY...an affordable AND simple 1968-1970 bus disk brake kit that FITS STOCK 14" BAYWINDOW BUS WHEELS!! This kit is almost identical to the split bus kit, but it uses a different wheel seal.

We designed this kit to be an easy, bolt-on install with all of the required bits and pieces to make the install a breeze.

Rather than building a kit based off custom-made or fancy race car parts, we went the other way and built our kit using super-common, easy-to-get parts. The rotors, calipers and brake pads are used on millions of American cars, and the parts are readily available at nearly every auto parts store across the USA. If you are 1000 miles from home, and you need a replacement rotor or pads, there is no need to wait a week or more for custom-made replacement parts. Just swing by the local NAPA with the part numbers provided in the kit.

The caliper brackets are made from 3/8" laser cut steel, the adapters to the stock 5x205mm bolt pattern are made from 1/2" laser cut steel, then machined on CNC equipment. We add custom high quality, USA made press-in 14mm wheel studs, and include lug nuts to fit stock VW steel wheels. The rotors to use with this kit are large 10.5" diameter, 1" thick vented style. The calipers are used on countless GM mid-size cars that are heavier than a VW bus. High quality Timken, or National brand bearings, new conversion rubber brake hoses, lug nuts, wheel seals, and new billet dust caps are all included in the kit.

Not included in the kit are the calipers, rotors, and brake pads. We have done this for a few good reasons. Included with the kit are all the necessary part numbers and applications that will cross-reference at any good auto parts store. Shipping heavy rotors, calipers and pads is very expensive. We figure since you own a VW you are already familiar with your local auto parts store. Take the list of part numbers into your local store and pick up the parts yourself to save the shipping. For you folks who want drilled or slotted rotors, those are available from other on-line retailers as well. Some people/shops also have connections and get good parts store discounts, saving themselves even more. Buying the brake pads yourself also allows you to pick the pad grade that best suits your driving. There are tons of different pads available for these calipers.


With stock 14" steel wheels, this kit will add about 3/8" to each side, or 3/4" to the overall track width. Most aftermarket 5x205 wheels can be run without the extra 3/8" outer spacer, making the disk kit almost the same as stock width.

THIS KIT IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN 5X4.75" CHEVY PATTERN AND 5X130 PORSCHE PATTERN.
