  • drop spindles

    well made but had to have calipers machined to fit on disc .front brakes are a bit hybrid so perhaps this was the cause

    Thank you for your review, these are a straight bolt on conversion and we have had no fitting issues. As you say it does appear you had to machine these to accept your bespoke brakes Thanks JK
  • Nice bit of kit

    Fits really well and delivers an understated 2 inch drop as advertised. Fits with stock wheels and tires too. The spindles themselves are solidly cast with all the holes and threads in the right place for problem free fitting. Very happy as my bay window now fits in my garage.

    • I have a 1972 bay window which is the cross over year I'm after 2" drop spindles is my brake set up the same as a 73 as I don't want the cost of swapping the set up over and all spindles I've found are 1973 onwards
    • Answer: You could have either fitted. What is the size of the upper caliper bolt?

    • Hi

      Please can you advise the best way to lower the back of the bus when using these. Can I use splines to get a 2" drop or do I need the horse shoe plates of which will achieve 3.5".

      Many Thanks
    • Answer: Good morning

      For a 2 inch drop you will be able to achieve this by adjusting the splines on the back.

      Kind regards

    • Hi,
      I have a September 1970 microbus which has front disc brakes. I don't know the history of these brakes so wondered how to find out if these dropped spindles would fit?
    • Answer: Good morning

      If you can measure the gap on the back of the calipers where the pads fit and give us the measurement you should be able to tell if they are early or late calipers.
