SOURCE: changing rear shocks on a 1990 jag

No. But if can't get it on a lift or high enough to work under comfortably..it 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 off....in 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.

SOURCE: my 1989 jag xj6. the rear suspension (shocks) are down

Hi Verbatum

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.

Good Luck

John.

have you tried reversing the pipes and see if that makes any difference other than that there must be a pressure difference between the two pumps try priming the filter with oil before starting.

Position of the rotor at tdc on 86 jaguar xjs v12


The TDC Sensor on the XJS is in the front of the car -under- the crank (main) pulley. The Speed Sensor is under the car attached to the flywheel cover. Two wires, two small bolts on each, they are also identical parts. The engine starting or not starting and just cranking is dependent on these two sensors. The other sensors all send readings only when the engine is running. The Coolant Temp Sensor on the front top of engine block can seriously effect engine starting and running. All sensors wire back to the CPU, all sensors need to be working and not faulty.

How many miles will you get out of the v12 motor in a 1989 xjs? Im looking to buy one but it has 250000km on the clock


I would get complete set of maintenance records for that one. 250k is alot for a jag especially a V12. That one is either running on borrowed time or has been meticulously taken care of.
