This brake kit has been specifically developped for the VW MK1 pick-up truck AKA Caddy.This 226mm rear disc set-up is used to upgrade rear drums to disc conversion. A video of installation will be available shortly on Youtube.
The kit was developed mostly for a very well balanced brake bias. With the weight transfer during braking on our cars, if the piston size is too big on the rear calipers, the rear will lock up before the front; Not something desirable. The piston size in this kit, is the same as the Scirocco 16V rear calipers, and smaller than the Mk4 alloy calipers, that have too much of a piston area / clamping force, to be properly balanced with our earlier W/C models.
Here is what you get with the kit:
2X Red or black powder coated (special / custom made) 2 piston calipers
2X Red or black Mechanical parking brake calipers, with laser cut pad spacers, for a perfect fit.
Pads for all 4 calipers
2X Stainless braided lines with 90 deg. JIC / proper fittings. These thread into the fitting UPSTREAM the axle beam, bypassing the hard line on the axle beam.
2X 6061-T6 aircraft grade powder coated mounting brackets.
All necessary hardware / shims / washers.
2X Cable sleeve for matching E brake cable fit in caliper stop
2X Especially developped barrel cable stop to retain OEM cables in place:
(Must be cut near the caliper, and new barrel to fit on OEM cable, to perfectly adjust length, and also fit the 5/16 barrel hole on E brake caliper.)
What you need to have prior, to install this kit:
Disc stub axles, Disc brake cables, OEM 226mm Discs (P/N 6N0 615 601)
To convert from drums, the upgrade kit can be ordered with the check box. This includes left and right stub axles, 2 bearing kits complete with seals, and all necessary hardware, and two parking brake cables. We strongly suggest to use / change prop valves, to adjustable aftermarket ones, if upgrading from drums.
Instructions are on web based link in PDF format, with plenty of pictures, and also available on our youtube channel.
These kits clear 13 inch wheels:
Rear splash guard needs to be omitted, as the bracket will take its place.
