The difference is one uses an I beam axle and the other has a round tube axle. Sorry both pictures are of the tube axle. The only reason not to use the tube axle is if you want the vintage or "old school" look of an I beam axle.

This front end kit does not include hubs or brakes. It uses Ford spindles so you could use our Speedway brake kit number 91031945 or 91031946. You could also use the Wilwood kit number 83514011013 for a great look.

how far out does the front end (spindle location) end up from stock?

This kit will change the wheelbase to 107.5”. Your stock (non Super Beetle) wheelbase is 94.5”. Since the back of the car remains stock that means the front wheels get moved forward 13”.
