Got my XJ last year, and was lucky enough to get very cheap here in the UK
as Gas prices so high, people not wanting big heavy juicy cars.
Wanted a few things done, as was going to be my daily drive, as I have a V8 2008 Mustang as my toy. so got rear leaf springs changed and dampers re bolted as snapped off as per usual (Thanks to this forum for help in the easy fix on this) Wheels re furbished with new tyres. (Sorry Tires lol ) Rear brakes used to stick on which is common according to on here, but replaced rear handbrake cables, as were burnt re touching exhaust, and two new cylinders. No sticking now, and brakes better. New Cat Plus rear box. And finally, just replaced the cracked manifold, again common according to here, with a stainless steel one.
Now quieter, and drives fine. Not for off road, so no lift or big wheels, albeit I love some of the pics on here of the "Sorted" ones.
Even with all the stuff done, still a cheap car here. Love it, as my 3rd one.
Again thanks to all who helped, and regards to all. Pic of mine in Essex England.
But BEFORE rear springs were done, hence looking saggy in these shots. Les
