Sticking with the AWD route, with prices for Sierra 4×4 parts on the increase and available parts becoming fairly scarce, I decided to look at the Jaguar X-type.
Brand new parts are available ‘off the shelf’, for less than some want for 25 year old parts in need of overhaul.
Part Number : C2S 25284
This one was bought on Fleabay for less than £10
(from a 2007, with less than 26,000 miles)
Obviously, the whole upright cannot be used (even with a mushroom top adaptor) as the Steering Axis Inclination would be huge, but it provides useful parts for making custom uprights.
The front uprights would have press in wheel bearings.
- The front hub #C2S 8056
- The front wheel bearing #C2S 8276
For the rear, bolt on hub assemblies are available.
- Jaguar X Type AWD rear hub assembly #C2S 3301
