Ride Control parts replacement

Recommended Posts

One of the many common problems on a Jag is the front ride control. Front ride control parts typically consist the following - Wishbone, upper control arm, lateral arm bush, lateral arm wishbone, antiroll bar linkage and front stabilizer bush. Over time, the rubber parts will break, torn or disintegrate. Lifespan is about 3-4 years, especially in our climate. 

How to identify?

1) Clanking noise going up humps

2) Clanking noise under heavy breaking

3) Steering feel is soft

4) Steering will veer to one side moments before the car comes to a complete stop

5) Car does not feel as firm as before.

 

After much procrastination and unbearable clanking noise, i finally took some time to get this fixed. 

Immediate feedback after repair

1) Steering wheel feels firmer

2) Front suspension feels firm yet not harsh

3) Lesser body roll

4) No more clanking noise

5) Instant renewed handling confidence

What happens if you ignore:

1) Alignment runs faster than it should

2) Improper tire wear

3) Handling performance may decrease significantly. 

 

I made sure the workshop installs original jaguar parts and not OEM and alignment. Not a cheap affair but who am I to complain. I chose a Jag and i still love Jaaaaag.
