Empi makes a stock link pin to 5/130 disc brake kit. Ordered. Parts will be here Friday morning. Also planning to put brass bushings in the beam. I should get started on the tune-up tomorrow, and spend Friday on the front end.

Awesome! This is the first type 1 that I've installed brass bushings in. I found the perfect ones. Press fit .010" into 2" x .120 tube.

Check it out:

I removed the dropped spindles in favor of some stock porsche 356 spindles Wink

Front is a little high, and the rear is a little low. I'm going to adjust it this morning.

Andy here are the bushings. Retro-fit them into your 2" x .120 beam, all you have to do is open the I.D. to fit your arms ~.1460" - 1.465" acounting for press fit.
