Thanks to Cliffs help i believe these are 72-73 ghia disk brakes on my 59 bug. so with that said what wheel bearings will i get or should i try and repack them first?

when i had the tire off... looks like it may be the tie rod too.






looks like two pin pads to me

I recommend changing wheel bearings if you think they might be worn out.

I had a wheel bearing sieze, and break my spindle.

I AS WELL HAD THAT HAPPEN. ON THE DRIVERS SIDE JUST AS I WAS GETTING ON THE FREEWAY FROM PENRYN. WHEEL SHOT OFF ACROSS THE FREEWAY HIT THE CENTER DIVIDE AND CAME ROLLING BACK TO THE MIDDLE OF THE SLOW LANE. THATS HOW I ENDED UP WITH MY GHIA FRONT DISCS.

Nick,
Just a quick comment on grease. For your disc brakes you must use Disc Brake Grease, clearly labeled on the package. Color doesn't matter, approval rating does.
