MG MGF Technical - MGTF Sports Pack suspension

I'm asking this on behalf of a non-Internet enabled friend who owns a 2003 mgtf. He needs new front shock absorbers but he's not sure whether his car has the Sports Pack option fitted or not. Is there a quick way to identify which type of suspension he has?



Sports pack 2 consists of 16" 11 spoke wheels, big brakes with a red caliper and Goodyear tyres but no suspension mods.

Sports pack 1 had lower springs so visually the car sits lower to the ground

It is also possible to have both SP1 AND SP2 (or one or the other) - as Dave says, the ride height is the obvious difference (from memory it's 20mm lower) but you need to be a bit careful as there are aftermarket springs which lower but use the same shocks.

Thanks guys,
It looks like he doesn't have any Sports Pack options fitted.

Thanks for your input.
