I'm not familiar with the evolution cones. Is there a difference between coned for the front and cones for the back? Mini front suspension is loaded differently than the rear, so it might seem logical that the design for the front (shape and/or elastomeric properties) would be different.
The Moulton Smooth-a-Ride system (a different product) does have different cones shapes and they do take a while to settle in.

Has anyone installed the Evolution cones from Mini Spares? If so how much did your car settle? Mathis is my first time installing new cones/bump stops and the mini is sitting 2” higher in the front than the back.  Yikes!
