thats not true, you can do a 4 link with track bar in the front if you want. Its all give and take with a four link. roll axis', antisquat, etc...

is a really good one. Only problem with xjs is they are unibody so you couldn't really adapt a kit for an xj .

I would also try some 4x4 shops around to see if any of them have done one before.

70 and previous = d30
71-76 = d44 with drums
77 = d44 with disks (might be 76 too...)
and i thought it was 79 fullsize d44 that had cast on wedges..
