KNOCKING WHEN DRIVING OVER BUMBS

1995 Jaguar XJS

Suspension problem
1995 Jaguar XJS 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 78000 miles

My XJS has been making a knocking sound that has gotten worse, I check under the hood and discovered that the rubber bearings on both sides above the wheel have rotted. When I removed a wheel, I saw that there is more rubber that has deteriorated. Is this something I can fix myself? What parts would I need? Should I replace more than just the rubber?

You can do this on your own. You can get the new bushings from your local jag dealer. It might not be a bad idea to do the shocks while you are in there.
