    Which one do I want to put in a 56 F100?

    I just got back from the local Pick-Your-Part and they had several to choose from. There were several mid - late 70's XJ6 versions without LSD, There was an 88 model with LSD and an early - mid 70's XJ12 L with LSD. BTW the XJ12 L had some bitchin worn red leather bucket seats. I don't have any use or storage for those right now though.

    The 88 model had single coil springs on each side while all the earlier models had dual coil over shocks on each side.

    They want $250 +tax for the whole assembly so, I may just wait until the next half price weekend.
     
  2. I was at the pick your part in sun valley the other day and saw a Jag IRS and they wanted $89 for it

    Isn't the diff the same as a Dana 44? I'm not positive, but I believe the '88 is wider than the 70's models.

    70's to 85-85 XJ12 is the bomb. The newer ones are harder to deal with and the parts are more expensive. The XJ6 can be upfitted with a Dana 44 limited slip....

    Take the front end, too. I just put an '84 XJ6 front end in my 48 F-1. It's a bolt in swap on f-1's, a little bit of cutting on f-100's. There's some info on this forum, and also on ford-trucks.com.
     
  6. The front end is the easiest thing ever on F trucks, gets 'em in the weeds.
     
  7. Frank, aka FARNA on the board posted some info about Jag IRS a couple of months ago.. Search for it, may be of some help.

    I love jag frontends. Figured out I can stuff one under the front of my mustang with some trimming and fabing mounts. Same width at the wheels even. I believe the rear will fit too, but it needs some tricky brackets, and it's a slightly wider track.

    I think there should be twin springs on the 88 version especially if from a V12 ,there so common over here you cant give them away ,well i have given them to my mate who is a Jag nut, back to the spec bit i havnt seen a Jag or Daimler of the years you listed with single springs perhaps they were just removed and used on somthing else, Good bit of kit but in UK a dated and rarely used in a new build item, Cheers Skimmer

    Thanks for the measurements.
     
  14. that rear pumpkin is a dana 44, it was made by dana uk. the only difference is the size of the ring gear bolts.. they are smaller.. but you can drill em out and run regular off the shelf d44 bolts.. at least thats what i read. if ya needed to change out the gearset, which you would want to as alot of those had 2.sumthin rear gears...

    Does anyone know who makes--offers the brackets to use corvette c4 front calipers in place of the stock rear inboard jag iron calipers--some flash guys like to polish the vette calipers and use with the finned rear cover -like kugel components but I cant find who supplied the brackets.

    You might have been better off starting a new thread for this...

    I don't know who has the brackets you're looking for, but you'll need more than brackets - the C4 'Vette front calipers are not going to work on a stock 3/8-in-or-so-thick Jag solid rotor, at least without extending the pistons dangerously far out of the caliper or (maybe) putting some kind of spacer between the pad and the piston.

    You'd also lose the parking brake that's fudged into the Jag Girling calipers.
