The aluminum rear trailing arms on the R56 (and GP cars) have one slight change from the previous cars, there is a bushing on the stock lower shock mount that extends into the trailing arm. If you try to bolt after market shocks like Konis or coil overs onto the car, you will destroy the rear trailing arms. We now have a solution in our stainless steel, precision CNC machined rear suspension bushings. These bushings simply go between the shock and trailing arm to make a perfect fit.
Includes a set of 2 bushing 1 for each side
enough for one MINI
**These are a must when you are doing an Aluminum Rear Trailing Arm Conversion Kit for R50 R52 R53 MINI Cooper and Cooper S. Like the R53 GP or the R56 cars came with aluminum rear trailing arms. This was great as it reduced unsprung weight and also gave more room to put wider rear tires on. You can get R56 rear Trailing arms at any local auto salvage yard.
