The MGF was fitted with a ‘Hydragas’ suspension system employing interconnected fluid and gas displacers which provided a surprisingly compliant ride and could be tuned to provide good handling characteristics. However, it must have had its problems because when the MGF was replaced by the MG TF in 2002 the Hydragas suspension was replaced by conventional coil springs.
MGF owners can now have the relability of conventional dampers combined with the benefit of bump and rebound adjustability by fitting GAZ GT adjustable dampers.
GAZ fully adjustable GT dampers enable the damping bump and rebound rate to be adjusted to suit the conditions and driving style by means of an easily accessible knob on the side. GAZ can set the dampers up with valving for general road use, but they will also be suitable for the occasional track slalom and sprint use; alternatively, they can be set up for serious racing use if you so wish.
GAZ GT dampers feature a zinc plated body and have a protective plastic sleeve to keep them looking good and working well for long into the future. All units are individually tested before leaving the factory and are covered by a two year warranty
