try haynes.com or your local parts store for a Haynes manual. For around $20 they are frequently as good or better for home mechanic than factory manuals for $100.

Yes front coil springs are what you need !
I think the spares situation for Jaguars, is disgusting with the main dealers.
I have been trying to source them myself, for about 2 weeks, and only found ****, painted up second hand ones.
I will keep trying, and let you know if I am lucky and find a source for genuine new springs.
