While others use 1" diameter 6061 aluminum material, NM Eng machines their F56 MINI control arms utilizing aerospace grade 7075-T6 1 1/4" hex aluminum finished with titanium tint Type III / Mil-Spec Anodize. The use of larger material provides rigidity and strength of steel bar but without the weight. NM Eng Control Arm Kits for the MINI F56 also feature precision heavy duty rod ends made from heat treated hardened steel with self lubricating nylon race. The threaded rod ends allow users to dial the suspension camber to desired specs, crucial for the weekend track enthusiasts and professional racers. T-303 stainless steel is used for the spacers to avoid any flexing and crushing caused by suspension load.
- Kit comes with two (a pair) complete bars with hardware, set at factory arm length.
- Vehicles with HID (Xenon) headlights can only install/replace lower control arms.
- Heim Joint (Pillow Ball Rod End) may generate some noise for its lack of rubber bushing while still performing normally.
- These bars are finished with titanium tint Type III / Mil-Spec Anodize
