Details

Gen1 MINI models including the R50, R52 and R53 are getting to the point where they can almost qualify for 'antique' car plates in the USA (most states) and with there being so many of these loved cars on the road we have found that many owners want to keep these cars on the road or their garage for the rest of their life. We're here to help the cause!

Kit includes:
- New front and rear Struts
- New Front Strut Mounts/Bushings
- New Rear Shock Upper Bushings
- New Front and Rear Spring Retaining Pads
- New Front and Rear Sway Bar End Links
- New Bump Stops
- New Rear Shock Boots
- New Front Control Arm Bushings
- New Front Control Arm Ball Joints
- New Strut/Shock Mounting Nuts/Bolts

Please note there may be a few items on the list of parts on the bottom of the page that are not shown in the photo (dust boot and rear upper spring pad). Also, in many cases there are multiple quantities or left and right versions of each part which are also not shown but are included.

We proudly offer this fairly complete suspension rebuild kit that includes all of the most common components that when replaced will leave your MINI almost new again. Our kit includes Bilstein B4 front and rear shocks, front and rear end links, front and rear upper bushings, front and rear spring perch pads, dust covers, bump stops, control arm bushings, ball joints, and a set of hardware to make the re assembly a breeze. All of the brands we have selected for each component have been chosen based on the reputation of the brand and a price value relationship. We have opted for genuine MINI parts for a few items while other items are aftermarket from companies such as Lemforder, Febi/Bilstein and URO. We feel the combination of the brands selected offers a outstanding value with OE equivalent quality to our customers.

The Bilstein B4 shocks provide a small performance increase over the stock shocks and would be considered more in line with the Sports Suspension kit that MINI offered as a upgrade to the gen1 MINI model range. We can also build this same kit with the Sachs shocks/struts if you prefer at a increased cost should want to stick with the stock ride feel of the factory installed suspension.

While we've assembled quite a thorough kit here we think some MINIs may benefit from replacing the front and rear sway bar bushings, however there are at least 2 different sizes of rear bars and we've also found that MANY gen1 MINIs will have been upgraded with larger aftermarket rear swaybars in which case please contact us to discuss options. This kit requires re using the factory springs.

This is a review of the M12 stud conversion kit for the R53 MINI Cooper S. This is the second stud kit that I have installed. The first set was of much lessor quality and was totally worn out within six years of auto-x, track days and winter tire change-over.

These new studs appear to be far superior and slightly longer. I also like the unthreaded portion that allows lining up the nut to help prevent cross threading.

I do have one question; Do you recommend any using any lubrication on the threads of the studs?

I have ordered many items from Outmotoring in the past (I live in London) and the service they have given me has always been first class. If you have an issue with regard to an item or order, all you have to do is email them and they will always try to help you out and resolve the problem. I would recommend them for any of your Mini accessories. Eddie

Hi
We are an overseas customer in Perth Western Australia and can only recommend both the service and the quality of products supplied through Out Motoring. My wife has just received her 2nd mini an electric blue F56 with black roof named "Fabian" dont ask me why but thats how they sell cars in Australia (all have names) We received several items recently and have been installed quickly and easily. Thanks for shipping overseas and look forward to buying parts and accessories to add to the looks of the car.Even my good lady wife was impressed
"Happy Wife Happy Life.
