**Requires the rear hub diameter to be machined down. Any local automotive machine shop can do this for approx. $75 for the pair. Ask your local shops for direct quotes.
**This kit may also require a longer wheel stud as the rotor is now approx. 3 – 4 mm thicker than the stock brake drum. Lug nuts should always have approx. 6 FULL turns of thread engagement. We offer these longer studs, as well: Longer Wheel Stud.

Allan Awesome kit, easy assembly even with no instructions. Great support
This is the kit you have been looking for! This kit is the finest brake kit you can get, hands down. I have seen other kits on other friends Vanagons and they looked alright, but they don't hold a candle. Installation was smooth, there were a couple of small brackets that I didn't know what they did and since the kit doesn't come with instructions I emailed in to ask a few questions. The Burley team responded so quickly and answered a few more questions for me as I was doing the install. An A+ kit from an A+ company. If you have been searching for the right rear disc brake kit for your Vanagon, search no more, here it is.
Marcus K. Your famous brake kit made its way into my driveway this weekend. I had done all my research and chose your package because it was rated for 6k pounds of weight. The difference is like nite and day. One week I am having to almost pump my brakes before a stop sign to get my van to slow. The next week, all my fears were gone. I can finally drive down the road like a normal person, braking and feeling confident. It stops on a dime now. I absolutely LOVE IT.
Big, bad brake kit! I have done several brake kits over the years, and I really love this kit. I went for the drilled and slotted rotors because my van carries a very heavy load over the summers. I carry large filming equipment and a family of three. It gets pretty crowded. But I have never had an issue with the reliability of these brakes, even with my large loads and on some very steep terrain. I pretty much buy everything I can from Burley because I know it will hold up well. This saves me from headaches now and money in the long run. Hope this helps sell some more! Good day!
Great Rear Disc Brake Kit! I just wanted to thank you for the great Rear Disc Kit that you sent me for my Syncro. It was very easy to install and all the parts are of outstanding quality. I was concerned about the parking brake from what I had heard from other rear disc brake kits. This product delivers excellent parking brakes even with a very heavy syncro on steep inclines. I don't even worry about it rolling anymore. The kit came as ordered with everything needed to make this installation a breeze. Thank you again.
I've installed several different disc brake conversion kits and although they have worked fine driving, none of them had parking brakes strong enough to hold a loaded Vanagon Syncro. Burley solved the problem! Great job. This kit is the bomb!
This is a truly great kit. The parts are top quality and very easy to install. The only difficult bit, done at a shop, was properly torquing the axle bolts after the final installation was complete because I didn't have the correct tools. The balance between the front bigs and these Burley's when stopping fast with a fully loaded Vano is smooth and reliable. The e-Brake works really well on hills and flats (I had to say that since the previous set of crap disc brakes I got at a "bargain vendor" wouldn't hold the van on level ground), holding the van steady as expected. This kit is definitely worth the price if you are thinking about converting from drums. Burley is great at Customer Service too, getting back to me very quickly to answer all of my novice questions. Overall a 5 star experience. Thanks
