No. But if can't get it on a lift or high enough to work under will be very awkward. The calipers get in the way when you are removing the springs and shocks as a unit. You can move the part and get it out and down, but you will need to remove the rear wheels and let the rear springs hang down.
Make sure you have a good spring compressor to get the old springs most cases it is the springs that go soft and not the shocks...
Don't assume that it is the shocks unless you know for sure they are bad.

How to drain fuel tank 86 Jag XJ6

Remove as much fuel from tank using a syphon or plastic pump.
Remove tank from car, Tip it upside down to drain remaining fuel.
DO NOT WELD the tank if it is leaking or the remaining fuel fumes will explode.

Where is fuil pump in 1990 jaguar xj6

The fuel pump is usually located in/on the fuel tank, but with your jag, it is mounted externally from the tank. Frame mounted design with an inlet and outlet fitting...

Jack up the rear left hand side. Put the car on axle stands. Remove the left hand rear wheel.

You should be able to follow fuel line back to the fuel filter (just forward of the wheel arch) and then to the fuel pump which is behind wheel arch, (before the rear silencer/muffler).

One thing though, you might just have a faulty fuel pump relay, which on your 1990 can be found in the engine bay, left side, attached to the brake pedal hanger.

If you do decide to remove the fuel pump after all, then depressurize the fuel system first.

Remove fuel filler cap, disconnect the fuel pump relay, start engine and wait for it to stall. Turn off ignition, then disconnect battery.

Take all the usual precautions before disconnecting fuel lines, rags, container to catch spilt fuel etc.

Hope that helps, please rate me too thanks!

Where is the fuel pump on the jaguar xj6 4.0 lit 1996

Hello: They are not always in the tank. At the left rear wheel, mounted above the inner frame, you can see it when the rear right wheel is removed and the car is jacked up. It may be easier to see it if you follow from the fuel filter which would be on the frame and just about under where your feet would be if you were sitting behind the driver.

Had a similar problem within the last year. Either your fuel pump is failing or your fuel filter is partially blocked. Change both and drive away.

1995 Jag XJ6 Rear Issues...need to fix ASAP.

My 1994 Vanden Plas makes the same noise. I know I need rear shocks. You do also!! Have the rear shocks replaced. Bilstein part number B46 1858 or Koni part  number 30 1377. Actually the Bilstein is the better shock and less expensive.

Changing a fuel pump on a 1984 xj6

there is only one fuel pump on that model. I'm in the middle of putting an lt1 in my 84 jag. The pump is towards the rear of the spare tier or closest to you when you open the trunk. There is also a small switching unit located next to it with lines running to either tank. This is what controls which tank the fuel is being pumped from
