Long storey short, I'm just in the middle of buying a mk1 mini which is wet and I want to dry it out, I know I can use the subbies but need to change the rear trailing arms etc, it's the front arms, I know they will be ok but I did here that hydro top arms are slightly shorter meaning I gain a bit less positive camber, a trick the appendix K guys use, can anybody confirm this or not.

they are the same length and are most likely from the same casting. the difference is the position of the drilling for the knuckle.

but they do stiffen the spring rate up and you need to drill out the shock mount hole in the arm.
