I’m about to replace the rear mounts on the front suspension of my series 1 XJ6 4.2.
I have access to a four post lift with a jacking bar and to a gearbox support hydraulic jack so intend to proceed as follows. Jack up the car with the jacking bar under the cross member and put axle stands under the chassis and remove the wheels. Support the bottom of the engine on a gear box hydraulic jack with a piece of plywood between the sump and the jack and then having removed the lower bolts on the old V mounts, lower the jacking bar slowly until the bolts clear. then remove the upper bolts into the chassis. remove the V mounts, replace with new, bolt up refit wheels and then remove all the jacks.
Am I good to go like that and is there anything I have forgotten ? Will doing the above put too much strain on anything, particularly the alloy sump and is anything likely to get in the way, power steering pipes etc? I’m also not sure about access to the front upper bolts on the V mounts, they look very difficult to get at, Anything else I should remove to give better access?
Any advice greatfully received. Thanks Ian
