Jacking points
« on: October 05, 2017, 07:28:16 pm »
So I've got a standard hydraulic jack and some jack stands

Problem is the jack and the stand doesn't both fit under the jacking rail at the same time

Previously I've only had to jack up the front so this hasnt been an issue but now I need all four wheels up at the same time

How do you guys do it? maybe a scissor jack will be small enough to fit the stand and jack underneath at the same time? or maybe there is another jack point under the car?

given he said a hydraulic jack... I presume it's either floor jack or bottle jack?
