Adjustable Tie-rods
When you change the length of the lower control arm to attain the desired degree of camber, the caster also changes. To reset it you must be able to change the length of the tie-rods. Our special adjustable tie rods are almost twice the diameter of the stock version and are far less likely to bend. Remember, in addition to controlling caster, these tie-rods also control stability under braking!
Busings not included. See 31G1155 for standard rubber. WB3, C-STR628, -629, -and 631 for harder options.
Use GFK3224 for the lock nut.

Stock rod diameter is .5", these adjustable heavy duty rods are .630" diameter.

Suspension - Heavy Duty adjustable tie rods 21A1091
Created: July 24, 2003
These rods have been produced to improve car stability when cornering and braking and to facilitate easy adjustment of caster angle. Manufactured from a high-grade material in a much larger diameter than the standard items they are far less susceptible to bending - both in use and where poor workshop practice is observed. The most common fault here is jacking the car up with a trolley jack sitting the cup up against the forward tie-rod mounting bracket on the front subframe. As the wheel droops, the tie-rod becomes bound hard up against the jack cup, the sheer force of the un-loading rubber spring causing the insubstantial standard tie-rod to bend. This effectively shortens the tie-rod, therefore increasing caster angle.

Despite the five main factors that control the front suspension geometry – kingpin inclination, caster angle, camber angle, track, and bump-steer – we are only really able to alter three of those easily. King-pin inclination is non-adjustable, as it’s a feature of where the swivel-pins are mounted on the hub at the factory.

The data on this page relates to all Minis unless specified. Major changes to suspension and steering are limited to the introduction of a new steering rack and steering arms for Mk2-on models. Mk2 steering arms have two `ears' to aid in the use of ball joint splitters; this is how they may be differentiated from Mk1 steering arms.

These rods have been produced to improve car stability when cornering and braking, and facilitate easy adjustment of castor angle. Manufactured from a high grade material in a much bigger diameter, they are less susceptible to bending than the standard items. The standard castor angle is 3° + ½°. This will change when the car is raised or lowered, and when adjustable or negative camber bottom arms are used (these tend to increase castor).
