For what it's worth ... I am CURRENTLY (SUBJECT TO CHANGE) planning on leaving Fri. A.M. & IF things work out, I'll go to this car show Sat. before the reunion. It's about an hour away. I figure after 12 hours to get there, what's one more hour? I'll have room in the trunk if anybody wants something small moved. I forgot, I can't "copy & paste" to here. Go on spacebook & look up *Three Springs Carnival* & search there for *car show*. The car show is Sat..

ALSO "copying & pasting" to the "upcoming shows" section.

Just curious if others are interested in this.

I've been following a guy on Youtube named Ludworks and he just upgraded his Lower Ball joints using the Jaguar #JLM11860.
He mentions, "It fits most models, Vanden Plas, XJ, XJS, XJR, XJ12, etc. I recommend searching using the "XJS" model name, as it should fit every single year of that model and it was fairly popular in the US."

He also starts the video with trying to go with the aftermarket ball joints which is really just an upper with a sleeve and shows why/where it failed.

Youtube Video here:

He mentions if anyone is interested in a set to reach out. Thought I'd mention it here.

He must be on this site somewhere but I've yet to meet him - god I have so many questions! Hehe

Ran into this guy again tonight. He gave me his card this time. This video is one he did LAST year at the show in the title. I couldn't find the video then & just gave up, then he did another one tonight.

Saw a GRAND TOTAL of 2, TWO AMCs at the show - both my Eagles! ;D Had kinda hoped a couple people from the club that are near would be there. Oh well, I tried. I WAS representing, had my AMC flags on the Eagles & wore my club t-shirt! Here's the pics. I took if y'all wanna see them.

A week later it's still ICE cold. I am considering replacing the drier, O-rings, and vacuuming and re-charging with 12a. I am optimistic now that it's still working great after a week. I bet with new O-rings and proper vacuum/ dry air it might last quite a while, I want it to at least last the whole summer.

The lack of personal articles with actually experiences do seem to be lacking, which is why I want to do this project.
Yeah, it's a good idea. Would you publish it?

I’m thinking so, but I’m not entirely sure yet.
