Winter is coming and a lot of classic-Mini-based kitcar owners will be thinking about taking their cars off the road for some restoration.

GAZ Shocks is probably best-known for its competition and performance suspension, but if you are thinking about replacing your Mini’s shock absorbers, GAZ also offers telescopic dampers for the Mini to standard specifications.

Actually, it’s more of a ‘standard plus’ specification; although the dampers are the same size as the originals and a direct bolt-on fit, they do offer the extra benefit of full bump and rebound adjustability by means of an easy-to-reach adjuster knob on the side. This provides the optimum settings for conditions, use and driver preference.

Each damper unit is bright-plated as standard to resist corrosion; however, for a more subtle, classic look the dampers are also available in Classic Black at a small extra cost.

GAZ dampers for the classic Mini can be ordered as part number GT0-2022 and retail at £59.06 inc VAT each.

All units are individually tested and provided with a test print out before leaving the factory and come with the peace of mind of a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
