[concours] E-type - Question on Official Jaguar Suspension Options

This is not actually a concours question since JCNA doesn’t currently
inspect the car’s undercarriage, but who knows what direction the rules
will take in the future? In addition, Class D slalom rules prohibit
suspension modifications.

Does anyone know what listed suspension alternative parts are in the Parts
Catalog? I’m not talking about stuff like the brake cooling stuff. I would
want roll control without any non-Jaguar changes. Please don’t start
suggesting things like poly bushings and such - they aren’t allowed in
unmodified classes.

I can’t seem to find my copy at the moment.

I know that MG and Triumph had official “special tuning catalogs” which
included suspension upgrades. (I have an MGB issue, as a matter of fact).
Did Jaguar have something similar? If so, would items contained therein be
“legal”?

This is the official “Tuning and Preparation of ‘E’ TYPE CARS for
Competition Use” from Jaguar:
