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!"

Fitting the MGF Hydragas Suspension Replacement Kit to an MGF is within the capability of an owner who is competent and familiar with working on many aspects of their car beyond simple servicing, and who has a comprehensive selection of tools and good working facilities. However, XPart recommend that it is fitted by competent motor engineers and that the fitting instructions are strictly adhered to. If in any doubt, seek professional assistance.

As a guide to professional fitting costs it is worth noting that the MG Rover time allocated for the replacement of standard displacers and dampers is listed at 2 hours per side. Fitting the MGF Hydragas Suspension Replacement Kit should occupy a similar time frame.

Note! Any seized nuts, bolts or other fixings, which is a quite reasonable expectation on a car made before 2002, will lengthen that time.

The hydragas suspension system operates at very high pressures, nominally 400psi, so has to be given respect if injury is to be avoided. This system needs to be depressurised before the hydragas components are removed and we can only advise the use of the specific hydrolastic suspension pump to complete this process. Obviously one of the huge advantages of the MGF Hydragas Suspension Replacement Kit is that the hydrolastic pump is never needed again.

Vehicle Insurance
Please be aware that the majority of motor vehicle insurers will require you, the owner, to advise them of changes made to your vehicle. Owners of cars fitted with the XPart Hydragas System Replacement Kit should advise their insurers that the conversion has been carried out. Should your insurance company request it, XPart has pre-prepared a declaration that you can send to them, it can be found in Section 3, Page 15 of these Fitting Instructions.

Please note that XPart cannot guarantee that your vehicle insurance company will provide insurance as a result of the declaration.

Fitting is as a direct replacement for the original displacer, utilising the original pressed steel mounting plates. There is a slight fiddle to mount on the balljoint then offer up to the body, with the adjuster fully in. Once bolted in place the adjuster is wound out fully to set the car at the optimum standard ride height. The car can be lowered only to a point which does not interfere with the standard geometry.

The Hydragas suspension on the MGF very successfully blends tight, sports car handling with a comfortable ride. It has never, however, been a cheap system to service or repair and owners without access to the special pump required to charge and discharge the suspension with Hydrolastic fluid are effectively excluded from doing much of the work themselves.

Add to that the fact that availability of some of the critical components has recently become patchy (to say the least) and it doesn’t take long to work out that there are MGFs out there being kept off the road by Hydragas suspension system faults.

Now, from Xpart comes a great solution to the problems of Hydragas suspension. The MGF Suspension Kit, designed and manufactured to be fitted as a complete system, replaces the original Hydragas displacers and shock absorbers with new coil spring units (utilising the original pressed steel Hydragas mounting plates) and new matching shock absorbers.

The kit provides handling and ride characteristics somewhere between that of the MGF and the firmer, sportier ride of the coil sprung MG TF.

The kit includes four spring units (front and rear), four non-adjustable shock absorbers and comprehensive fitting instructions. Note that while the spring units are adjustable, this feature is really intended as a fitting aid and not as a means of altering the ride height of the car. Note also that the Xpart kit is not suitable for cars with lowered suspension knuckle joints.

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.

Suitable for:
MG TF up to VIN 5D639630

Includes four Bilstein shock absorbers.

When introduced, the TF model had undergone a suspension redesign. The design team's task was to make the TF feel 'sporty' however the motoring journalists at the time and owners today comment on the TF's jittery and uncomfortable ride.

The answer is to replace the standard dampers with these premium quality units that have been specifically developed and designed for the TF model and have been tried and tested by MG owners. The reports that they provide are a very worthwhile and great improvement to both handling and ride comfort, removing the harshness from the TF ride.
