jag rear

If you use the jag crosmember-cage it should be easy. My son has a 350-350 in his 22 dodge bucket and he found a drive shaft in the parts pile that fit both ends. It wasn't marked so we have no idea what i tcame out of . just had to cut it to length, no expensive pieces to buy. If you want the open look there are crosmembers and kits you can buy. I think Concourse West in oregon has a lot of parts wou will want.

All I know is that adding Jaguar parts to anything will usually cause oil leaks and electrical problems.

jag

K and k custom crosmembers have a good looking kit for using xj6 front parts. I looks like they change the geometry a little bit. K and K looks good on open wheel cars. for a full fendered truck you should be able to use the stock X member. those swaps are popular in England. CCR sells plans for T buckets. I copied the jag pages and laminated with clear shelf paper for the shop copy. I don't know if the copier distorted them but the college electric eye plasma followed the patern and they weren't symetrical side to side I have a couple of later series jag front susp in the shop and I plan on doing something similar to the K & K design.

stitch, look s good

the old ccr plans uses clevis and heim ehds and the center section bolts on solid. Stitch used a lot of rubber bushings so he should have a very good and quite ride, The old xke racers didn't like the rubber mounts in the stock jag setup , It had too much movement for hard road racing.

Jag ifs

Mercury man
The ifs in my truck was a slick install, my frame had been altered prior to my buying the truck so it was a little harder. the measurement for the front is 26 3/4 inside front mount to inside front mount. if your frame is smaller or larger you will have to make offset hangers. clearance on the frame rail to the top of the front rubber mount is about 1/2 inch. the jag crossmember should measure the same front to back off the floor when at ride height.

jag front and rear

My son has a 46 international truck. we had been checking out doing a disc brake conversion . pulling a couple of spring leafs We were at a wrecking yard last week and the guy said he would sell jag fronts and rears for $ 100 each. When the snow melts a little we will go that route. We googled Jag suspension and there are a lot of different sites that have a lot of information.

89 up Thunder birds had independent rear suspension. Why arent they being used instead? The 8.8 rear is a goodie. American made. What gives?
My 93 had rear discs also. Sounds like a no brainer to me.JMHO

Also the jag front that is pictured looks like it weighs a ton

The Jag rear is also made in the US, by Dana, the same company that makes the 8.8 A Tbird rear is much harder to mount, a Jag in the original cage needs 6 bolts to mount it. A new Mustang IRS is a neat piece, and also mounts in a cage with 6 bolts.

A Jag front end weighs about 200 lbs complete. Most of it is aluminum.
