    Frank.............if you have welding skills and a good grasp of geometry , grafting Jag suspension should not be that hard. This is not a beginners job and if you don't have said skills, you should get someone with them to help you.

    Frank, here's a link on another forum where a guy installed the Jag frontend in a '64 Ford F100. It might give you some ideas. Slick 60's • View topic - -TECH- Jag XJ6 IFS into F100

    Well guys, I will answer the hard questions first eh. The front bit goes to the front followed by the rear one at the back. If you get that wrong, you just may have trouble I would think.

    We put Jag ifs and irs in our '47 Ford sedan about fifteen years back.
    I don't remember any major issues, in fact, from memory it was a very easy install.

    Having said that, the link randyr posted is excellent!

    You won't go very far wrong by following that...
