Default Bushings, suspension, etc

Good day everyone! Is there a "package" of bushings and shocks I can buy and install to freshen up my road feel?

I've not heard of an all-in-one package but you could call some vendors and ask.

Use OEM style on control arms and "poly" type on the sway bar and steering rack, IMHO

Cheers

Welsh Enterprises sells what you are looking for. It is a very comprehensive kit for the front end that includes:

Upper ball joints
Lower ball joints
Upper control arm bushings
Lower control bushings
Sway bar bushings
Sway bar end link bushings
Upper shock mount bushings
Steering rack bushings

All of the bushings are polyurethane. The kit is pretty impressive.. I've actually got one sitting about five feet from me right now. It is definitely a job to install them all, though.. I plan on dropping the entire front suspension assembly to make it easier.

Perfect. Exactally what I was looking for. An excuse to throw some more dough at Walter, my XJ6.

Countless thousands of dollars just waiting to come available to pour into our Jags.....my wife thinks Im a sick man. But I know I love my car and the long life we plan on living together. I just got my turn signals and head lights operational. The flasher relay was at fault for the turn signals. The new replacement I bought needed to be looked at, and put in squarley. My mechanic said when I initially installed it, a little piece of plastic got jamed in there and that was the difficulty. I dont know about that but they DO work now. I am smiling ear to ear as I drive one of the most beautiful cars on the road today. 2800 dollar initial investment, another 3K in brakes, tires, AC problems etc...But I am still in love and look forward to a long and rewarding automotive relationship. My sun roof only goes back 2 or 3 inches and then a clicking sound ensues if I hold the switch down. So I dont use the sun roof. She is basically good to go now, with a few little issues such as the sun roof.
