Jag front end

Is the XJS the same front end as the XJ6? I have been searching, and can't find any info on this. Will the XJS front end work for a 49 f1? Saw one on craigslist being parted out in my area.

That is what I am using,an XJS 12. they appear to have one more coil for the added weight of the V12. I am rather slow on this project but it is coming along

Same front end as the sedans, except for spring rate difference due to V-12. The IRS in the V-12 is factory limited slip, but you asked about the front end.

If the seller has the engine out, then getting the front suspension out is remove four bolts, remove upper shock mount, remove P/S lines, uncouple steering and undo the brake lines and it will be loose from the car. If the engine is still in the car, the engine mounts to the suspension crossmember, not the car frame (really is unibody, but you get the idea).

When I got mine, I got everything some of the guys here could think of.
I DIDN'T get the pwr steering pump. You should really get that if it's still available. and the steering "Z" shaft for soft mounting also all the rubber attaching pieces and the brake line fittings at the rubber hose connection.
They are wierd but 3/16" line fits them. the fittings are not something you can just pick up at autozone.

Alright guys so here is the deal with the front end. It has everything but the steering box. Is that going to be hard to track down later? Other then that it looked to be in real good condition, and the front end of the car was straight and never crashed.

how much money for that? If it's cheap enough, thats one thing, I paid $300 for mine and the rack n pinion was included. I would check into the price of a r-n-p
They are not easy to find here in Peoria,IL

IMHO it needs to be real cheap, the R&P may be very hard to find and/or expensive. Search Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market for the box to get an idea.

I agree with AX. but it would still be good for spare parts.
