Part No: C-AJJ3360
One piece, forged, fully on car adjustable lower arms (with joint for bushes) to allow adjustment for any camber setting required. Sold in pairs only.
By discarding the eyelet for the bushes, you can fit spherical joint/rose joint ends for race use. Makes all other arms obsolete!
See C-AJJ3360A for 'on-car' adjustable lower arms with heim-joints.

Safety critical, the one-piece forging is of the highest quality; far stronger and with ultimate integrity compared with the now-ancient method of cutting/welding on of adaptors – a process that demands the most specialised equipment and skill to be sure of component integrity.
Manufactured from a new forge tool, the bottom arm inner joint boss has been extended to accept a tube-nut adjuster that accepts the purpose-forged trunnion. The tube nut allows easy adjustment of camber without needing to jack the car up and disassemble the suspension; the trunnion giving all Mini owners an option previously only available to racers – the capability of having fully adjustable suspension without the need to use spherical rod-ends. The trunnion will take any of the rubber/plastic type bushes currently available to keep maintenance, cost and road noise down to a sane level when used on the street. For race use, simply replace the trunnion with a spherical rod-end. Simplicity its self.
To fit, jack car up and place securely on axle stands. Remove road wheels for easier access. Undo tie-rod to bottom arm pinch bolt/nut (1/2”AF). Undo bottom swivel pin nut (11/16”AF). Use ball-joint breaker (either wedge type splitter tool part number 660490 or, preferably, scissors type 660550) to separate the ball joint from the bottom arm. Undo inner bottom arm mounting pin retaining nut (9/16”AF) and remove inner mounting pin. Set adjustable bottom arm length to standard length for reference (10.20”/259mm from centre of trunnion to centre of swivel pin hole), fit new bushings and re-fit in reverse sequence to removal. Check manual for torque settings. Once all is in place, lower car to ground and nip inner trunnion lock nut up. To adjust bottom arm length, slightly undo inner trunnion lock nut, use tube nut head to lengthen arm to decrease positive camber/increase negative camber value to required setting, then tighten inner trunnion lock nut up again.
Specialist tools will be required to set the geometry. Mini Mania offer these as TOOL10 for caster/camber measurement and TOOL11 for tracking adjustment.
These bottom arms were designed mainly with modified cars/suspension in mind. As a consequence they come assembled with full lock nuts for maximised mechanical integrity where negative camber is set. Where used on near standard cars or where near standard geometry is required, disassemble the trunnions/adjuster tube nuts, fit the half lock nuts supplied and re-assemble. With the full lock nuts fitted, the arm at it's shortest length will reduce existing standard geometry settings by approximately 1 degree of negative camber (i.e. If standard is 2 degrees positive, this will be reduced to approximately 1 degree positive camber). With the half lock nut fitted the shortest length will add barely 1/4-degree negative camber to existing standard setting. All else is as above.

Strong and stable
I have these lowers along with the 21A1091 Heavy Duty tierods. They are super easy to adjust and they have stayed absolutely set through very hard daily driving and one engine change. They are the least expensive option in adjustable lowers yet are more than adequate. After a lot of reading on the Brit forums a favorite setup is 3.8 deg caster and 1.5 to 2 deg neg. camber. At 1.8 neg. camber I am not only very pointed on the freeway but the front really digs in on hard cornering. On 008's after a year I am still not noticing wear on the inside like so many guys like to waggle their fingers about. Tracking is straight ahead on the front and rear. Take care to make sure you are not toe-out at all on the rear...that is the one that will really get you.
