Why is it swaying sideways a lot?

Check for loose or worn suspension components. My XJ8 became unstable when a rear tie rod became worn. To check jack up rear wheels. If you can rock either of them left and right that might be your problem.

Im looking to buy a 1989 Jaguar XJS that needs rear brake attention.I hear rear end needs to drop to get at the callipers and discs>>Im experienced with domestic and foreign cars..Not so much...

Calipers and discs *can* be changed in situ, however its quite tricky. However dropping the rear subframe is nowhere near such a big job as people make out, the biggest problem can separating the exhaust pipes, as these all need to come off first.

Is there any way to tow a jaguar other than using a flat bed

You cannot tow it for any distance with the rear wheels on
the ground; either suspend it by the rear wheels, flat bed
it or remove the drive shaft..... the car has a sealed transmission and it would cause a lot of expensive damage with the wheels on the ground

Wheel bearings

If front & rear are discs like mine, the haynes manual is good. Either that or the workshop manual ...

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
