Jaguar Vanden Plas Retrofit kit available to replace problematic self-leveling suspension

(11 reports)

The rear self-leveling suspension is problematic and very expensive to repair. A retrofit kit is available to convert this suspension back to conventional shock absorbers and springs.

Arnott replacement kit for entire air shock system. Works great -
Not only did the self-leveling system fail, but I broke a coil spring going over a rather small bump in the road. The cost to OEM the original system is about $4,000, but a conversion kit to traditional systems in only about $1,200. Is is worth it to spend the extra $2,800 on a 20 year old car? I don't think so! -
Im looking to find who & where I can get the kit to change from the self leveling to the shocks myself because I like the car..E-mail theoriginalworldfamous@gmail.com If any one knows where I can get the kit and other parts at a good price please don hesitate to inform me Ide hate to junk the car......thanks guys!! -
