mini cooper 2005 hatchback: would like to lift it 1 to 2 inches is this possible?
I have about a 4inch clearance on my Mini and would like to lift about 1.5 inches is this possible and if so how?
You can raise the body by installing heavier springs or air shocks.
Do i have to get these from a Mini dealeror can I get them from a parts store, or on line???
Let me pose the question: Why? You have an under powered model. If you are interested in clearance for larger wheels, the answer is simple, DON'T. If you are looking at rally applications, the check out Fox Racing. You will also need beefed up steering and all supporting components if this is the case. Still, you would be better suited with an S.
just want to lift for looks and clearence. I'm not looking to send it over the top, just to stop from bottoming out.... using 17's and tire clearence is fine. I just want to get it off the ground a little.
Why..in God's name would you want to lift it...?
Like I said, either say you money for an S or a Countryman. I have stock 18's on it. They rock!
i know they make a lift kit for the countryman....i dont see y it wouldnt work on the cooper....not to mention that all u really need is a 1-2 inch spacer, just make sure its not gunna slip out or do anything sketchy haha
