Once again Jaglovers makes it affordable for me to run an XJS.
There was oil on the garage floor from one of the rear shocks. I
have no idea when the rear shocks were last changed so I searched
Jaglovers and found Henry Fok’s step-by-step pictorial on renewing
rear shocks on the XJ (basically the same components as the XJS.)
I purchased four Monroe shocks #39003 (from Amazon.com), got a no-
cost spring compressor rental from AutoZone parts store, and spent
lots of time on the garage floor racheting away.
The car now handles better on tight curves, doesn’t squat down
under acceleration and doesn’t ‘‘clunk’’ over bumps.
Thanks Henry and Jaglovers!–
