If carrying out this conversion please don't scrap the Hydrolastic Units, sell them or pass them on to others to help keep other Hydrolastic Minis on the road. 1960's Mini Coopers and early 1275GT are all worth more when still fitted with their original wet suspension system. Old Hydrolastic Units can also often be repaired and refurbished.

We have developed a way of putting a new hose on hydrolastic units . We offer (when available) refurbed used units that have been pressure tested,checked and repainted with new gaiter and a new hose .  These are done on an exchange basis.
