Australian racks were locally made. I understand that they were essentially a shortened Morris 1100 rack and as such are more robust than the UK ones. The Mini and the Moke used the same rack, so it didn't have additional stops. The wheels only rub when the suspension sags, they are OK with new rubber cones.

We don't replace them with inferior UK racks. The Australian racks are rebuildable, so we have them reconditioned and they are good to go again.

How do you correct that 'suspension sag' :?:

The bit after the words you highlighted in red tell you how to do it. You can buy and fit new rubber donuts and/or fit a set of HiLo’s. Either way you’ll need a suspension cone compressing tool.

Thanks, I had never heard of them.

Yet another thing to purchase for my Mini Moke.

Of course you’ll need one of these to be able to fit them……

Are you're that you are not in 'sales' ? :?:

You do appear to have a penchant for being able to 'upsell' and increase my purchase list. :lol: :D :lol:

I was expecting to see an Mini Moke coming up behind them taking it all in it's stride.
