Take it from a Jag owner, IF you don't mind leaky Rack and Pinons then consider it. I need to get my rack rebuilt now and am putting it off because of the $$$$

JagDaddy makes a very good point. At one time, in a land Far away, Jag suspensions (front and rear) were considered "trick" and put under all sorts of things,now with so many other options that have readily available and reasonably priced replacement parts, you would just be beating yourself up. They looked neat though, and really dressed up Model A's,T's and Deuces where they could be seen and appreciated for the "ART".

For the car that you are building, I would use a MII with power steering and the tubular A arm option. several companies make a crossmember for just such a swap, plus you will be into it for a lot less that the Jag plus when it comes time to rebuild the front end, and it will need to be rebuilt somtime if you plan on driving it, the cost of replacement parts for the MII will be far less that the parts for the Jag. (I have a MII in the hot rod and also have a 84 XJ6,soon to have a LT1 and 4L60E)

If you are planning to go ahead with the Jag suspension, contact Jerry Kugel @ Kugel Komponents. He pioneered a lot to the conversions and has more knowledge on the subject than anyone else. Try www.kugelkomponents,com
