Hi guys! I can't remember it right now. How many milimeters you got when turning a completely 'nut' round?

I've measured the front ratio to be 4.5:1. The figure of 3:1, as best I can tell, was first published by Clive Tricky in the early 60's and sadly, it's been perpetuated ever since. The rears I have measured to be 5:1.

 

Hilos are not an original part and there's many manufacturers of them, so the threads on the Jacking Bolts do vary between some of these. All the same, it appears a commonly used bolt in many is an M20 with a 2.5 mm pitch.

 

If that's what your Hilos have, 1 full turn will adjust the front suspension height by (near enough) 11 mm.

Thank you Moke! This's not for me, it's for a friend. He've just to fit HILOS in his Mini. I'll ask him what type of hilos has he bought.
