Aren't the stock ones good enough? Even the kit car Cobra guys sticks to them. They are easy to rebuild and have the e-brake included...

how's the width

The xj's are wider that most other rear ends. are you going to install the cage or fab new parts. CCR has plans for $5 on installing the jag's in T buckets. one problem we had was getting everything tack welded and in alignment. next time I will have every thing bolted to the brackets before tacking then to the crosmember. I think concourse west in oregon has brake upgrade kits

I'm using a non narrowed xj jag rear on my '34 Ford. works fine with the backspacing on the BMW 16x9" rims & 295/50-16 tires.

I tried the more narrow E-type axle first, but it was too narrow for my car/tire combo. Would have had to use massive spacers and that's not a good thing.
bolt pattern on BMW series is 5x120 mm, Jaguar/Chevy bolt pattern is 5x4 3/4 (same as 5x 120,6 mm)
The 0,6 mm difference is no problem (0,6mm = 0,024")

Staleg, looks good

Staleg, are you using only two stock springs ?. My son has all four and it.s way too stiff in his 22 dodge bucket lakester. I plan on using xj rears in my 32 ford project and the 29 nash roadster, I also have two fronts suspensions out of the later jag sedans. The ones that moved the brakes out to the wheels. I like the looks better on the fronts and will use gm caviliar rack for steering..

I will be using 4 coilovers, but not the stock ones. They are way too stiff for a hot rod.

Rear shocks

Staleg, What rear coilovers did you decide to go with? I will be after some shortly for my E-type rear set up?
