Hi
\015\012
\015\012Yes front coil springs are what you need !
\015\012
\015\012I think the spares situation for Jaguars, is disgusting with the main dealers.
\015\012
\015\012I have been trying to source them myself, for about 2 weeks, and only found ****, painted up second hand ones.
\015\012I will keep trying, and let you know if I am lucky and find a source for genuine new springs.

This is very annoying. I almost have to stop and drive over the bump very slow in an angle almost. Do I need new shock absorbers and new spring coils in the front??

Have a 92' GMC, XC, K1500, 4X4, 5.7 350 engine with transmission fluid leaking from the torque converter cover. (Has a 4L60/700R4) I thought it might only be needing a new conv or possibly a new front pump seal. Then I drained the pan and the oil smelled burnt. No shavings but was told the clutch plates could be burned up and I will need a rebuild. What could have caused this...aside from being old or overworked?

Catalytic converter My check engine light is on, and the codes have been run a couple of times, and I need a new catalytic converter. My question is, where is the catalytic converter for a 2000 Accent? Is it half-way down the car before you get to the muffler (picture A) or does it sit vertically up in the front of the car with four inputs to it (picture B)?

My 1994 range rover county lwb has a problem with the air suspension. It's down to the bump stops. The shop replaced a relay (amr1111) and the suspension control module. When that didn't fix, they told me I needed a new compressor, and my front airbags leaked and needed replacement. They wanted $1600-1800 to convert to standard suspension (not including the repairs they already did that weren't enough.$775) Is that reasonable, or should I replace compressor and airbags?
