Vanagon Front Disc Brake Kit
BMS 2wd Big Front Brake Kit is absolutely the best engineered kit and continues to be the number 1 best selling big brake kit on the market !
Built using tried and trusted components originally engineered by Volkswagen / Audi.
Another big plus is the parts are a set that is used on several 2001 and newer USA models of Volkswagen – Audi vehicles. NOT a mishmash mix of parts from various makes, models, years, proprietary rotors or obsolete parts like other kits being sold by the completion.
Our kit makes replacement pads, rotors etc. super easy to get for a very long time. This is something you should always consider when making a brake kit choice.
Our kit is sold complete featuring all the top quality parts listed below :
High quality 288mm drilled, slotted and vented rotors for maximum cooling efficiency. Our rotors are approx the same weight as the original rotors so they won’t overload your wheel bearings / cause failure. Massively heavier rotors would bring the serious negative effects of extra unnecessary un-sprung weight to your van, we certainly don’t want that !
Brand new pair Calipers.
High-quality Ceramic brake pads for maximum stopping power and reduced dust.
A pair of hubs that are CNC machined from high grade aircraft alloy steel , our hubs feature press in studs for added safety. Our hubs also maintain the stock track width.
New wheel bearings, seals and spindle safety nuts
Braided stainless DOT approved brake hoses that run directly from the caliper to the hard line on the van body. This method eliminates the original problematic 3” curly-Q section of hardline at the caliper
Stainless dust / cooling air ventilation shields.
New caliper and brake hose mounting hardware
While most steel and alloy wheels will fit with the BMS front big brake kit, we have not had the occasion to try every wheel that is out there. However, here is a list of wheels that we know will fit for certain:
* 15” ASA ( clone MBZ wheels ) Model 8 wheels sold by Tire Rack ( aka look alike MBZ wheels sold by GW )
* 15” ASA model 9 wheels sold by Tire Rack ( aka ” Rally wheels sold by GW )
* 15” and 16” Carat wheels
* 16” clone MBZ wheels with correct et offset ( aka look a like MBZ wheels sold by Tire rack and GW )
* 16″ MBZ CLK wheels
* 16” steel Mobelwagon wheels
* 16” steel wheels with correct et offset, EXCEPT MEFRO
* 16” Method 502 Rally wheels
For those who need to purchase the conical, ball-shaped lug nuts for the commonly-used steel wheels: 14mm x 1.50 Thread Lug Nuts
Lastly, please see our customer’s comparison and installation video on YouTube. That Baldwin Life does an excellent job of explaining things in an easy-to-understand manner that can be appreciated by all! Vanagon Big Brake Kit Comparison – Burley Motorsports vs. Small Car
**This kit requires 1986 or newer spindles.
***This kit does not come with lug nuts because discrepancies can be caused by the large varieties of wheels that are used by the van.
****The BMS brake kit DOES NOT change the track width of your van. But if your current wheel setup requires spacers, then those same spacers will work with this brake kit.
As always, this product is made Burley!
