SOURCE: Cavalier rear suspension clunks
HI, this noise can be caused by worn shocks,even if the bushings look good, you can remove one of them and check if is hard to constracts ,if not they must be replaced,

Yes, replacing the self leveling rear shockers with gas shocks, is the way to go.
The self leveling system was notoriously problematic.
Due to either to the leveling sensor going faulty, and making the car go up and down, whilst sitting at the lights. ( Do not be surprised to see that yours has been disconnected. )
Other problems are loud knocks over the big bumps, and finally oil leaks from the shockers.
Yes Jaguar in there wisdom, did not make things easy, and new gas shockers will not match your old springs.
I do have all the Jaguar part numbers somewhere for this job, if you want to keep it all Jaguar.
( let me know and I will have a look !)
I have seen in the past, Modification Kits being offered in England, but would have to get back to you with source.
I see you are in Canada , and I am in Spain, and not familiar with your spares situation out there.
You will be requiring 2 Gas Shockers, 2 Springs and retaining collets, and plates.
I hope I have been of help.

You have to take the trunk liners off of both sides. There will be 3 13mm nuts on each side for the shocks, and under the car is a 16 or 17mm bolt that has to be removed. I hope this helps.

I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. Airbags and compressors are constantly having to be replaced. Also something alot of people don't know is that theses air suspensions are not meant to be in temperatures above 90 Degrees or below 40 Degrees. That is most of the world. The temperature will cause you to replace alot of bags. and typically when your replacing a bag you are going to have to replace the compressor to because the bag had a hole or small crack in it causing the compressor to over work and it will die. I posted the link below so you can take a look http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-suspension-parts-s/1.htm I hope I was of some help Good Luck!!!
