[xj] Subframe Weight

Could anyone give me a rough estimate of the weight of both the
front and rear subframe, complete but not including wheels?

Thanks,

Rear about 250 lbs, front maybe 150-200 if it has calipers and disks.
Not something you’re going to easily pick up by yourself.

Neither of these can be lifted by two guys easily as well. We muscled it on a jack or
lift and moved it around this way, but its sure a lot easier after taking some of the bits
off.

In reply to a message from joe@joea.com sent Fri 25 Jan 2008:

Mike:

Do you have a project in mind? I just read one of my old magazines.

Jaguar front and rear independant suspensions. Corvette TPI. All
nestled in a resurrected 37 Cord body. Rear quarter windows
blanked. Modified Auburn front fenders to turn with the wheels
Full skirts all around in shining red. built in his garage. Truly
stunning. All from cast off parts!!

Another lister has a 48 Chevrolet Aero sedan suitably chopped with
Jauar V12 and related running gear.

Or is it just a logistics thing?
