late model irs.

I saw a bird IRS in a T bucket about 7 or 8 years a go at a car show. The guy said he was going to fab up tubular control arms and sell a kit but haven't seen anything yet. the stock pieces look too much like minimum cost stampings 50 years ago the brits were into function more than minimum cost when they designed the Jags. . The jags always looked better under a T bucket. (4 jag IRS and IFS in the shop for our projects.)

I saw a t-bird IRS too and to me it looked like a lot more work that using the jag. I'm like you, I like the way the jag looks too, especially when it's going to be fully exposed.

The newer mustang IRS is supposed to be a pretty stout unit; although it won't look as good fully dressed out as the Jag, it probably works a zillion times better.
I rode in a Jag equipped Tbucket and I was less than enthusiastic about the ride quality over say a 4-bar setup or coilovers in the same style car.
That being said, I have no idea about the skill set of the builder of the car. Perhaps he had the whole thing FUBAR and I didnt know. I imagine the flyweight Bucket vs the hefty full-bodied Jag has something to do with it.
