Greetings fellow Jaguarist and a Happy New Year to one and all …
Lately I’d noticed that the left side of my car is about 1/2" lower (measured at the rear wheel well) than the right. Pulled the wheel and the spring looked normal. So thinking that the only things that determines the ride height are the springs I decided to rebuild my assemblies. I purchased new rear springs and all the bushings to do the job. I’ve also ordered a set of Bilstein shocks which I haven’t yet recieved.
My question is that although I’ve rebuilt these assemblies several times in the past I don’t remember
using parts 4 and 6 in the illustration below. Did the shocks I used in the past have this welded on?
I hate to pull off the assemblies and then find out I need to order and wait for those parts.
