I start feeling that my bowel will detach from my stomach while driving in urban setting and this has to stop. There's the soft ride suspension kit available from Rimmer but I did notice that the ride had become much stiffer after replacing the rear antiroll bar links. Did anyone tried removing the antiroll bar and if so what's the verdict re suspension stiffness ?

The anti-roll bar makes no difference to the stiffness of the suspension in a straight line. It will increase roll stiffness when cornering.
The TF does have a hard ride in standard form but it is not the springs that are the problem, it's the dampers.
As you say there are "soft ride" kits and they do solve the problem.

I would imagine that the lack of an ARB might make trhe handling somewhat 'exciting' too??

I'm actually questioning the added value of rear ARB. For our type of use, regular IRS (that's what it is) has been bog standard on many roadsters without the need of an ARB and since the dampers are quiet stiff, it's probably over-engineered.
