Thumbs up

Ford 9" or Chevy 12 bolt on leaf springs with traction bars will hook up just as well and cost about a quarter of what the Jag will. Not only that but you'll be able to get parts anywhere.

The Jag is more suted to a show car where the rear is very visable because they're cool looking. The Jag will handle somewhat better than a solid axle but in my opinion not enough to justify the cost, unless you're going road racing.
