    2007 XJR Air Ride Replacement

    This is my first post as I just purchased my first XJR after wanting one FOREVER.

    I am getting an Air Ride Suspension Fault and have read on numerous sites to check the 3 earth grounds because the code says low voltage (according to the salesman I bought the car from when he had it checked). In the event that does not clear it, I will be replacing the front factory Air Ride shocks. It looks like the right front may be loosing pressure. I am capable of doing the work myself and look forward to learning EVERYTHING about this awesome car.

    So here are my questions....
    (1)Are the XJR shocks the same as the other XJ models? Just wondering if my supercharged model has upgraded suspension.
    (2) What is everyones preferred manufacturer for replacement?
    (3) What are some of the best internet sights for parts?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Welcome to the forum.

    2 things you will learn quickly, battery health and earth points. Before you spend any money on changing parts unnecessarily, fully charge the battery and ensure the 3 ground points in the engine bay are clean and tight and go from there.

    I do not offer advice, I only say what I would do with the set of circumstances presented. Your choice always.

    Thank you. The battery is only 6 months old but I will check the voltage as well as the alternator.

    I think that Arnott sell replacements and they are in the States, Florida; https://www.arnottindustries.com/
    Definitely check the battery first though.
