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

His video saved me a huge headache with that whole interference issue at full bump. I had to tinker with my Rare Parts units quite a bit to get them to not rub. I'll definitely be buying his plates for the XJ joints once he starts selling them.
