Jaguar IRS Parts Needed

I'm useing a Jag IRS unit in my new car, because I can't afford a Heidts IRS, and I was wondering if anyone out there knows of a good supplier for afermarket Jag IRS parts. I will need billet outer bearing housings as the stock units are both cracked. I will probably buy the Mr Roadster aluminum dif. cover from Speedway and I've sourced a Company in Washington that will build me some shortened tube axles. I will shorten the lower A arms myself. I was origanally going to pollish the bearing housings myself but when I got them cleamed up I noticed that they were cracked between the gusset flanges. It is a very strange crack that would seem to have also gone into the flanges themselves but didn't. I could weld these cracks but because of the way they are cracked I would not want to take any chances with then.
If there is anybody out there with some helpfull info. I would be very greatfull. Thanks Walt

If he has all stock parts they probably wouldn't be much help. But if he has any of the after-market parts that I mentioned by all meens pass the info. along Thganks, Walt

Ive bought my parts from concours west, he has billet hubs (i know people running over 500 Hp with the cast hubs, they usually only break when the bump stops bottom out. ( i have a set of cast ones if you are interested) but here is his web site: http://www.geocities.com/~concourswest/

the jag unit is far Superior to heidts in my view, the heidts is only a copy of jaguar and their control arms are not stiff enough in my view. stay with Jag or upgrade to corvette C5 if you can find a complete trans-axle. stay away from heidts, it looks trick but its an engineering disaster..

Thanks, Duece

I've been in contact with them I think that I spoke to John. He is very knowlegable and I think that he will be helpful. He lists a set of billet outer bearing housings but says that he won't machine any until he gets an order for 20 units. Well I'm not going to hold my breath for that one.
I've also heard about a shop named Snow White. Has anybody ever heard of this one?

Jag rearend

I believe Jerry Kugel in California pioneered the use of the Jag
( both front and rear ) suspensions. He should have a zillion parts and tech know how on those units. He may be a bit pricey?

This has been my experience with most of the fosdick aftermarket crap out there. Use OEM or build it yourself if you want it right.

This thread is over 9 years old, he's probably found what he needs by now or given up...
