    Cool. And seems like it can hang on walls better too...hehe.

    I dont have any experience driving with a good suspension..mine was shot when I got it, so the driving I did do was squeaky and made me really careful...hehe.

    Oh, you have a lil dirt under there, might wanna fix that

    Do you think that both an adjustable upper and lower link is necessary to properly align the rear camber, or can you get away with only using an adjustable upper link?

    Lower link not necessary . Installing an adjustable upper link like I did puts the tire back out to where it's suppose to be and gets the car back to factory alingment specs. Actually better. As the stock setup had variances in production and was shit. I prefer adjustable uppers because it pushes the wheel back out to where it's suppose to be. When you agressively lower and make the lowers adjustable it still has a narrower track then stock. I plan on also doing my lowers. But it's not necessary . If you want a set of uppers or lowers made I can make that happen.

    Built some ramps for the D to get on the lift. 150 bucks in materials. Just need to paint them anti slip black . Now I can fix the sticky left rear caliper on the lift. I did a lot of work to this car in a storage unit. Life with a lift is much better lol

    I rebuilt the brakes in my car about 2 years ago now. I have only put 3 to the 5000 miles on the car but my brakes started to get sticky. Origionally when I rebuilt the car I was concerned about corrosion in the lines since the car had sat so long. But I believe after actually driving the car it knocked a bunch of old corrosion in the lines loose. My left rear was locking up after drives so I took both rear calipers off and rebuilt them . You can see the cross referenced jaguar rebuild kit seals from Rock Auto in the pics. I found a massive amount of rust in the calipers pooled up on the line in side . And both seals on both line in sides of the rear calipers were blown. Originally when I rebuilt them I used some brake build lube you can get at parts stores but I didn't like it . It was to thick. It's real easy to pinch the seals on the Pistons in these cars. I have found that using some dot 4 as lube really is the best and easiest method. Put it all back together adjusted the parking brake while I was in there and took it for a drive . Good as new. I am gonna do the front as well another day. I did. Flush the lines again and got just a little bit more crap out. Also replaced the clutch reservoir fluid while I was in there. Total cost. 14 dollars .

    Cool. I've considered taking my brakes off and doing a refurb on them...but not sure I'd have the skill and dont wanna wreck them.
