    Brake squeek 1/revolution when not braking, XK 150 Jack points to investigate?

    My XK 150 with the Wilwood front calipers has an irritating squeak when rolling without braking. It is once per revolution, and silences when applying brakes. Sounds like it is from the fronts, assume something is touching and I want to jack with trolley jack to spin wheel. Are there best or worst jacking points? Anywhere on frame ok? (I'll make a plywood pad).

    To polandpdx, the section for your car is this way:

    That's assuming of course you have an XK 150 (as you stated) and not an X150.

    Sorry - missred the xk 150 for x150 and then linked to the wrong pic

    If original XK, maybe look here: https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/x...-xk140-103268/


    If X150 XK or XKR: https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/x.../#&gid=1&pid=1

    Polandpdx, Is the car a soft top?
    If it is, I would advise jacking on an alternative area towards the front of the vehicle.
