From 1968-on the Mini incorporated a steel sleeve into the lower A-Arm bushing. It has become quite common for this sleeve to fuse itself to the fulcrum pin to the extent that pin sometimes will have to be cut to be removed. Any time the front end of the Mini is "kerbed" or takes a hard impact, this pin should be checked. Reproduction part; sold each.
