I suspect that the front large bush you have is an equivalent of a usual bush hidden under rubber boot in normal shock(that Larry mentioned in another thread recently), you'll need to add all rubber bushes to these, so 4 front ones and 4 rear ones.

ok, but on the fronts, you actually mean I have to put new XJ40 bushes "in addition" to these, or "instead of"??
I'm not clear, thanks.

In addition, over the spacer on the shocker rod.

Ok Sir,

I'm clear with the front bushes, a set of 4 part # MMD2144AA is needed, correct? I guess i can re use the gaiter of the existing Jag sport shocks and put it on the Konis.

But as the rear assembly is more "hidden", what rubber bushes are there involved? Just part # 3565AA, or are there more things to change ?? I want to buy the whole thing at once before attempting any removal to somehow avoid the risk of staying stranded...

Correct re MMD2144AA.

Re rear shocks, have a look at this recent great thread re rear shocks:

viewtopic.php?f=24&t=998347

It has info on every part that you'll need.
