On this blog we're talking you through servicing your Mini's Suspension!
Drive your Mini, listening for bumps, bangs and squeaks - observe the harshness of the suspension operation and smooth operation of the steering including the returning to straight forward position after cornering.
Walk round your Mini and observe the ride height - it should be 9.5" from floor to sill (seam edge) on the front and 10" floor to sill (seam edge) on the rear.
If the suspension is lower than the settings above then you may need to replace the suspension rubber cones or adjust the Adjusta Ride units if fitted (dry suspension) or pump up the hydrolastic system (wet suspension).
We have put together a list of handy blogs for you to guide you through servicing your Mini's Suspension:
