Frequently Asked Questions How do I adjust my rear telescopic dampers? There is a knob or a screwdriver adjustment at the bottom of each damper. If you turn the adjuster fully anticlockwise it will be on the lowest setting, then turn the adjuster clockwise - On our newer dampers there will be 28 points of adjustment and on our older dampers 14. You need to count the clicks, as once the maximum damping has been reached, the adjuster will keep turning. Always adjust both dampers an equal number of clicks.

New cars can benefit from Powerflex bushings because their superior design offers more effective control of the suspension components to a much greater extent than normal rubber items.
Created: June 23, 2015
The MINI Cooper suspension utilizes rubber bushing in both the front and rear control arms. The factory original bushing typically last about 60K miles before you might notice a few clunks and/or squeaks while driving. They are basically used to isolate the different parts from each other and to prevent sound and vibrations coming from the road and tires to travel through the rest of the car. Worn-out front control arm bushing will result in increasing less responsive steering.

In a front-wheel drive car, all of the steering and power comes from the front wheels. The usual result is that the typical front-wheel car has a tendency to understeer. If the car is going to fast, or turned too abruptly when entering a corner, the car will push ahead in a straight line, rather than turning to follow the direction of the front wheels. Understeer is what occurs when a car steers less than (under) the amount commanded by the driver. Understeer is a good thing for the average driver turning the average corner, since the car is less likely to swerve or skid, should the driver turn the steering wheel too far or too fast. In fact, even most modern rear-wheel cars are engineered to have a little understeer.
