The Badger Bus got a 4" beam 944 disk brakes on early (55-63) dropped spindles for the front.

In the rear there is a straight axle conversion with T3 brakes and VW to Porsche wheel adapters to get the right offset for the wheels.

We also did new brakes lines front to back, 1776 engine, new fuel tank, new steering box, and repaired all foot controls.
