    Are you married to the idea that it needs a Jag rear end? What are you planning on running for a front suspension? IFS?
    If you plan on a dropped I beam axle in front, I’d shy away from an IRS.
    If you’re planning on independent suspension in front and back, you might need to try a forum that would be more of a street rod based forum.

    My son is wanting it. I'm for an 8" Ford.
    Dropped axle.

    Why do you say dropped axle and IRS is a bad combination?

  6. If so, you need one from a XKE. They fit better and look good.
    Was used both by early Coddington John Buttera and other builders.
    Check with Kugle.
    Might be a little pricey.

    Maybe you can talk him into a quick change rear instead which would still have the wow factor.
