MINI & MOKE PAIR OF HILOS WITH CUPS- PREMIUM
HILO- MINI & MOKE PAIR OF HILOS WITH CUPS- PREMIUM
Each Hi-Lo Suspension Kit Includes one pair of Hi-Lo trumpets and nylon knuckle cups which will fit front or rear, but you will need the sleeved rods HILO-01 to enable fitment to the rears. For a car set you require 2 HILO kits plus HILO-01 kit. A complete car set is available as HILO-SET.
Many people will tell you why you should consider upgrading to the original classic "HiLo" suspension, but the best reason is they are the only RAC homologated set available which gives safety issues "a peace of mind". The adjustablility of ride heights allows you to very accurately balance the corner weight of the car. This is very important if precise handling is your objective. "It's easy to change ride heights"
"It was designed years ago for Special Tuning rally programme"
"It allows you to compensate for sagged rubber cones" correcting ride heights.
The shape of the trumpet against the cone spring helps improve handling
If you need the car even lower,dispence with the locking nut which was never on the originals and shorten the main adjuster bolt 3/4" and circlip.
Hexagon adjusting rods are available seperately for the original method of
easier adjustment on front and except 1976 on where the larger subframe turret bolts were fitted.The rods never fitted Vans/Estates/Elf or Hornet variant or rear subframes from 1990 on when genuine rear subframes no longer had an adjustment hole which is why Keith Dodd initiated the change to spanneror rod adjustable and had them RAC homologsted in 1994/5 for Motor Sport purposes.
The Hilo also lowers more than the budget sets available! neither does it corrode and seize up like alL metal type. This alloy type is also claimed to be slightly quiter in transmitting road noise.
SPANNERS REQUIRED TO ADJUST NUTS ARE 26mm AND 32mm.
12" wheels were 9.75" from ground to sill at front and 11" rear
10" wheels were half an inch lower at front and rear but 1"lower on rear early cars. These heights did vary on cones settling
