This brake kit has been developed for the MK1/MK2/MK3 226mm rear disc set-up, can also be used to upgrade rear drums. More information further down, for that application.
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.
Qty 2 - Grey Anodized Powder Coated (special / custom made) 2 piston calipers. Gloss Black / Red at an additional cost.
Qty 2 - Red or black Mechanical parking brake calipers, with laser cut pad spacers, for a perfect fit.
Qty Pads for all 4 calipers
Qty 2 - 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.
Qty 2 - 6061-T6 aircraft grade powder coated mounting brackets.
Qty 2 - Cable sleeve for factory E-brake cable fit in caliper stop
Qty 2 - barrel cable stops
All necessary hardware / shims / washers.
