Hi guys first post on here my 3ltr v6 awd requires the rear hub carrier bushes os & ns and when all stripped will most lickely need other bushes and the like.

I know one shocker lower bush is worn but my main question is why are the parts so expensive mainly the shockers are stupid prices does any one know of any supplier that sells suspension parts at good prices

i rebuilt a jeep grand cherokee complete front and rear suspension for under £200

Hi,

I just checked on eBay and they have pairs of shock absorbers for X type with 24 month warranty for £68 delivered, which sounds fairly decent. The cost of fitting would be the main worry for me - not being up to doing that kind of job. But check eBay - I typed in shock absorbers x type Jaguar and these came up third in the list.

Hope that helps - Alex.

Not damming Ebay or any other site at all, but do be aware of quality of the parts you are buying. A lot of  cheaper, especially far eastern, manufactured parts are not up to O.E. specification, although warranty sounds OK, sometimes having to claim it can be difficult. If they happen not to last, you have the added expense of paying for the parts to be fitted again, if not having to buy new parts as well.

I am definitely not saying "Do not buy them",  but I am a firm believer in "You only get what you pay for."

Best Wishes in correcting your problems.

Regards, John

Hi,

I suppose it comes down to affordability for people - buying genuine Jaguar parts from a dealer will cost you a fortune. Yes, these cars are prestige models by and large, and when new are bought by people who have money to spend. But for the second hand market, price will likely be an issue, as it seems to be for this member - and I'd add that my own experience with dealers has been less than great over the years. So, if you buy from eBay, you may get something substandard, perhaps, if you are unlucky. But they also sell good brands. I just got a Bosch air filter for my X type from there. I could have paid double for one from Jaguar. I shall change it at the right time as per usual and doubt that there will be much difference. It is buyer beware - and check for quality. Look at the reviews and feedback for sellers and that tells you a lot.
