Hello and welcome to justanswer.com
Jag only sells the bushings as part of the lower arm. You can source them on the aftermarket but you will need a shop press to replace them. Also that is the caster adjustment so an alignment should be performed after. Sometimes you can mark the eccentric so it goes back in the same spot but again an alignment should be done.

I do have a press and will need to find a source for the replacement bushings. I noticed the vin on this jag never matches up with vins noted on parts when searching.

is it possible to also rebuild the stock jaguar struts. They leak especially when cold and the front end drops.

I have never rebuilt these shocks as I was never able to source those parts. Try this site for all your parts needs.
