I notice that they are not available from Rimmer Bros.

F ones will fit a TF and give a slightly softer setup. Not sure if they are still readily available but I know my brother bought a new set off ebay recently at a bargain price, there must be old stock out there somewhere, its just finding it

That doesn't explain why the larger ones on the TF are in very good condition.

The larger ones face the opposite way so don't get water ingress into them....drive around everywhere in reverse and you'd soon see them degrade...at least the front ones would still be good though
