Mini spares list 3 different suspension packs; can someone help me by explaining the difference so I can work out what I want?

The car will be used as a regular driver but with the odd track day and occasional rally for fun.

It’s a 1977 clubman with a 1275 engine. I have replaced the doughnuts but am keen that the castor and camber can be adjusted front and rear.

any, it just comes down to what rubber bits you want/need.

Thanks Nick.

What is the difference between the rubber bits...sorry for sounding dim. What are the different bits going to do differently for me?

I have just fitted these - then had setup at Slark's.

--> That's what you want then get it all setup.

 

Tie bars 5 min job.

Bottom arms fiddly but did in an hour

Rears super easy but might need to fettle depending on car - if you need a hand then DM me

It's worth buying new bottom pins as well: http://www.minispare...px|Back to shop

 

I'm in the process of putting a fully adjustable setup on mine and it's come to a standstill while I wait for new pins - the old bushes were completely corroded onto the pins and wouldn't shift! Also get a full set of nuts and washers as well ... if you're going to put fancy new suspension bits on it'd be a shame not to have fresh new fasteners.
