21A1684

SUSPENSION REAR ALLOY STRUT

Genuine Mini Spares product, as per the last original Rover rear alloy strut fitted on the assembly line to minis with 12" wheels from 1984, 12.13" (308mm) fitted length and also fitted to Mini Van/Estate and Pickup, but later assembly line struts 21A1684S were 7mm longer (315mm)12.4" which were fitted on MPI from 1997 with 13" wheels and are also ideal for Cooper S pre 1964 plus Mokes which were (317mm). 1960's std Cooper were (314.5mm)

Rover used this same part number (which is rare) and supplied it in different lengths to suit cars loading but all the other different part numbers fitted length were from a minimum of 307mm to 317mm, (with a ratio of 5 to 1) this 10mm giving quite a different height range. We have also found these fitted from 1976 onwards on some cars with front discs and all cars by 1984 with 12" wheels.

This part was modified by Rover as a replacement for the earlier 21A1683, but it was made stronger with a 1/2" wider base and 1/4"wider seating area for the cone spring to compress on, and only 1mm longer than the previous 21A1683 trumpet although from batch to batch they were sometimes up to .115thou(2.9mm)different. Should be fitted in pairs for correct ride height.

we have got a chart with part numbers and lengths which is available on request and will appear on our new website in due course

These are perfect for earlier models and if you require extra clearance 21A1845 or similar washers can be added.

Or GSV1264EVO front knuckle will give extra 4.3mm height over original standard cones but the ratio is 5-1 on the rear travel and the front is 3 to 1.

Some minis had spacer washers fitted to the front and occasionally the rear especialy on 12" wheels. If you had the suspension lowered by cutting the trumpets and you want to restore car to the standard ride height and original appearance, these alloy trumpets make it possible, but we also have the "RAC Homologated" HILO adjustable trumpets as a low cost effective alternative.

See 21A530 for front struts or again the Hilo set up.

2 required per car. Supplied singly
