Jaguar IRS

Aside from the engine, the second most time-consuming job is rebuilding the rear suspension. Housed in a single subframe are all the suspension bits: inboard brakes, wheel hubs, half shafts and coil overs. Unique to this setup is the twin-spring damper units which saved space and it also provided a more equal distribution of spring forces which may or may not have been nominal. Since work on the brakes and dampers is somewhat hindered, Jaguar chose packaging over maintenance with regard to the rear end.
