Brand New OEM specification "Soft Ride" suspension kit.
Originally offered as an option on UK cars towards the end of production, these were factory fit on MG Motor models and specifically designed to improve the ride quality without adversely affecting the handling of the vehicle.

Installation of this kit results in a more supple drive, eliminating the undesirable harsh suspension characteristics of the standard suspension whilst maintaining that sports car feel. Ideal for those owners who do not use their vehicles on a race track every day!

Rimmer Bros has invested heavily to bring these OEM kits back into the market and has had them manufactured exclusively at a price that offers exceptional value for money.

The dampers feature the all important and expensive lower mounting spherical bearing. This allows the damper to pivot around the bolt centre thus reducing the load placed on the single mounting bolt.

Kit also features 4 x uprated, lower damper bolts. These are hot forged and ground to a specific size eliminating any unwanted play between the bolt and the rose joint. 

Why not compliment this kit by fitting a polyurethane suspension bush kit too! See part number RP1048TF or RP1048TFPB.

Can be fitted to all MGTF models. Note, if installing on MG Motor models (2007-2011) the bolts will not be utilised. 

Rimmer Bros also recommend you replace the following items as a matter of course:
RNF100090 x 8 (insulator rubbers) or upgrade to Genuine Polybush RNF100090APBO x 1
NY210041 x 4 (top nut)

Testimonial:

"There are a lot of things I like about my MG TF but the harsh ride was never one of them. The Soft Ride Kit from Rimmer Bros has transformed that! I can now enjoy a drive out without the creaking, thumping and harshness of the standard suspension. The kit has also reduced road noise and gives a much more comfortable ride whilst still keeping the all-important sports car feel. I would recommend the Soft Ride Kit to all TF owners!"

The KSX damper range is specifically designed for Classic Car owners who need a Bespoke solution to their suspension needs.

The basic principle of the KSX range is to allow you to create your own specification of damper from a standardised range of damper bodies and end fixings.

KSX dampers have 28 stages of on car stiffness adjustment. The adjustment is made with no dismantling and it alters both the bump and rebound forces in unison. The damping characteristics have been specially designed to be ideal for touring and for fast road use. SPAX KSX dampers are pressurized with Krypton gas. This produces not only superior low speed ride quality, but also high speed performance that is significantly improved.

KSX dampers are designed and hand built to the strictest German TüV quality standards, using the latest technologies and methods. Each and every damper is fully Dyno Tested to ensure you get 100% performance, 100% quality, 100% guaranteed. All KSX dampers are Epoxy Powder coated and oven cured for second to none looks and extra long life.

The KSX range has been designed so it can be serviced, re-valved and repaired if required. This allows a long and economic damper life.

SPAX’s massive buying power, commitment to value and “Factory Direct” pricing allows you to buy this premium product at second to none value.

Improved design, uprated, hot forged, high tensile bolt kit suitable for UK model MG TF lower damper mounting.

We've all heard about the original Rover bolts shearing off during road use, often with near serious results. Rover introduced a "fix" by using a 10.9 grade bolt but didn't actual solve the problem which was an over generous tolerance between the bolts and the inner bush diameter.

This uprated bolt not only matches the improved tensile strength of the Rover "fix" bolt but also eliminates the play from the over generous tolerance by means of a precision ground shank.

The last few threads are deliberately deformed for self locking purposes.

Suitable for all MG Rover original dampers and soft ride kits on vehicles up to and including 2005 MY.
Not suitable for Spax installations or MG Motor TF (2007-2011)

Please note: These uprated bolts may be a tight fit to standard shock absorbers fitted with standard fixed bushes, as opposed to rose-jointed bushes, therefore may require some slight reaming in order to achieve adequate fitment.

3 reasons the MGTF Softride Suspension is an improvement
Overall

Did this item work well with your project? What vehicle type are you using this for?

The struts are now fitted and there is a small but noticeable improvement in the ride quality. I was concerned about the possible body roll of the car when cornering and this is not a concern anymore. I found myself not avoiding potholes but driving over them to see how it feels. The skippyness of cornering from the old units has gone and the steering feels tighter. New wishbones were added at the same time with new ball joints. The wheels seem to be better planted on the road surface.The fitting was about two hours including removing the old struts. The bolts that come with this kit are a superb addition.

Easy to fit and a great rimmer bros video to help with the process. Super quality shocks really impressed with the way it improves the car ride
