This kit comes with all the parts neccesary to complete a rear brake service on your 2WD or 4WD Vanagon. The brands utilized in this kit are all from high-quality manufacturers. Your satisfaction is guaranteed!
• (2) Brake Drums or GoWesty Finned Brake Drums (see Brake Drum tab for fitment notes)
• (2) Wheel Cylinders
• (1) Set of Brake Shoes
• (1) Spring & Hardware Kit*

Note: The pins and hats in this brake hardware kit cannot be used. Please re-use your old parts.
Pro tip: Replace your old rubber brake lines with our braided stainless steel lines while you're in there! See related items below.
Important Note: These new GoWesty black-coated drums are coated on all surfaces, including the friction surface the brake shoes rub against. You may experience some brake surging until the brake shoes have worn all the way through the coating and the material dissipates, a process that takes no more than a few days of regular driving.
Fitment Note: The face of this drum is a bit thicker than the original; therefore, you will have less stud-to-fastener thread engagement when mounting your wheels. At 8mm of available thread (5-6 turns), the strength of the stud itself is exceeded (meaning that 5-6 rotations is plenty!), but if you want the original amount of engagement, longer studs are required. 56mm replacement studs are sold separately below. Ten (10) required per vehicle. If you are going to use this brake drum with any GW alloy wheel, you will need to purchase longer studs (56mm), sold separately below.
