    Hi Steve,
    your car will have the soft ride coil overs as standard as my TF 2005 does.
    For reference.
    the fronts are RND001400 with green coded springs

    the rears are

    RPD000720 with yellow coded springs

    just bear in mind that the MK2 TF 2005 does have some additional changes at the front (ARB ) to accommodate the softer spring movement.before deciding to make a change

    Has anyone out there in MG land found a way to successfully repair the front lower seat securing strip back to the seat frame ( as in photo).
    or. found a new fixing strip to replace the original sewn in one.
    thanks
    Mike

    the correct bolts for the TRE pinch bolt fixings are these.( Rimmers )

    rimmerbros.com/Item--i-FB110101

    and

    rimmerbros.com/Item--i-FX110041

    torquing up and the correct method are important

    hi
    the particular information I have relates to when the ARB linkages or ARB bushes are removed to gain access for suspension work of any kind.( say to add/remove suspension assemblies).

    It is vitally important that the ARB bushes and ARB linkage fastenings are only loosely tightened until the car is lowered ( the suspension is loaded) , or the suspension is pre- loaded at which point all the fastenings mentioned above should be torqued appropriately.
    If the fastenings ( bolts) are torqued in the suspension unloaded situation stress will build up in the bolts and lead to premature failure in the suspension areas.

    Information regarding torquing up ARB fastenings is mentioned in the F and TF service manuals.

    Incidentally one of your photos seems to show allen headed bolts being used -was this really the case?

    Hi Winko,
    a couple of questions for you .

    First of all is the failure you are experiencing occurring at the joint of the Front ARB and its link or the fixings of the ARB to its bush?

    1. The Bilsteins you have fitted -are they set at the hardest setting or the softest.?
    2..There is some mention of additional stresses at the ARB linkages by Roger Parker ( Everyday Modifications mgf/tf 2nd Edition) when using certain Bilstein damper/coil combinations)
    3. When did you have the Bilsteins fitted and what springs did you use?

    regards

    Mike
