When replacing struts in the old days, I would always swap the springs left to right, as the car sags with age more on the driver side cause that is where there is always weight. So the driver side springs are shorter, even though they started life with the same part number. This effect is really noticeable when the car is driven by a very heavy person

These days however I always go with quik-struts which have new coil springs and new strut mounts and cost less than buying all three parts new and they are much cheaper to install labor-wise.

There is a swaying in thr rear end of my 99 jeep grand cherokee Laredo


Unlike other Cherokees, you have coil springs in the rear, not flat springs.
Coils tend to react more to side loads and will therefore sway on turns more than a flat spring will. You need to look at the attachment arm bushings and mounts to make sure nothing is worn or loose.
Its very likely that the only thing wrong is that your shock absorbers are worn out. From the outside even ones that have failed don't look bad as the failure is internal.
When buying shocks, get the best ones you can afford. they last longer and control movement better. The more expensive ones tend to have larger pistons and better internal valving that translates into better control and longer life. If you carry heavy loads, I'd consider getting "coil over" shocks that also offer a bit more load carrying capacity.

Need source for new 1997 XK8 convertible front coil springs


Hi

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.

Best Wishes

2001 Audi A6 how to bypass the original amp


Hi there,

The stock amp (mounted inside the sub enclosure) found on the RHS of the boot behind the pull out pannel has a red plug with 8 twisted pairs of wires and 3 other wires (pos, acc and earth).

Out of the twisted pairs you will have

RHS Rear Speaker: Blue/Gray +, Gray/Blue -
LHS Rear Speaker: Red/Gray +, Gray/Red -

You will also have a pair of White/Blue and Brown/White which is the RHS input and a White/Red Brown/White pair for the LHS input. Although... the stock amp uses a common earth input as you will see, the two Brown/White wires going into the same plug.

To put in another amp, you will need one with 'high level' input. Make sure it can take a common ground type input. If it cannot then just use a "high level to RCA" converter.

If you are putting in an after market headunit like i did, then you will just need to separate the two brown/white wires at both ends. If you do this you will need to test which brown/white wire at the head unit end is paired with which wire at the amp end. They are twisted together at the amp end but not at the headunit end (unless you cut the cloth tape back far enough).
