As far as URO, my valve cover gasket I bought didn't exactly fit on my XJR but I was able to make it fit, they put the tabs off by a little bit.

Whether this was electrolysis or what, I don't know, but it sealed good and I'm not leaking oil anymore.

I've needed a front alignment for a while.

And finally got new shoes on the old cat.

Wow,  you almost got everything out of that tire. No sense in replacing them prematurely!

True.  It was getting pretty sketchy driving in the rain.  I've never ran a set of tires this bald, but I didn't want to buy new tires until I could get the alignment done.  And I couldn't get the alignment until I finished replacing the ball joints and all the bushings.  It took a while to get it done with all the other life commitments.

Knock on wood, I haven't had any suspension issues, yet.  Driving the XJ8 is a fun experience.  So far, my XJ is just a good car, that does car things well.

That front tire is what I would expect out of the rear tires on an XJR

Finally got around to replacing the power steering pump.  One of the seals in there must have let go, because it was leaking about a quart every two weeks.

I put on a new low pressure supply hose too.  It was a pretty straight forward job and the bolts were easy to access. Well done Jaguar design Engineers.

Need any Jag bits? The Orlando U Pull It has like 6 in there including a Sport model which is an XJR without the supercharger.
