Product Description

MG TF Factory Soft Ride Suspension Kit - New - RP1746 - OEM
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!"

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

IT WAS TIME TO MAKE MY 03 MGTF MORE COMFORTABLE AND THE KIT LOOKS RIGHT FOR THE JOB, THE FITTING VIDEO GOOD AND HELPS YOU WITH THE TOP NUT SCRAMBLE, HAVE NOW INVESTED IN ELECTRIC IMPACT HAMMER WHICH TAKES NUTS OFF IN MOMENTS, ALTHOUGH I DID DRILL NUT OUT LAST WEEK WHICH TOOK A WEE TIME. I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT RIMMERS INCLUDE FITTING INSTRUCTIONS WITH LINK TO VIDEOS TO MAKE LIFE EASIER FOR THE FRONT DRIVE MECHANICS WITHOUT RAMPS
