Car jack stands offer much more safety when doing any major work underneath your car. If you have any work like cabin adjustments, gutting a door or moving several moving parts it is much safer to do them with these commercial concrete jack stands as opposed to your car.
Whether it’s a 30,000-mile job, or just to temporarily lower and lift a damaged suspension, it’s nice to have something that actually holds. Your car jack stands will need to be made from steel. Or else, you can use a wooden frame, although your car will still need to support the weight of a very heavy load.
The length of the rear jack stands is important, as are the angle of the car jack and the relative distance between the jack and the floor of the car. The average car jack is 6’9″ in length and 8’7″ in width, so aim for the latter.
When choosing jack stands, it is always recommended to purchase them in pairs. If you don’t have much experience, it is good to get one that you have tested under conditions that you can replicate. No really, try it with your car. Take it for a spin and see if the grounds hold.
A jack stand with a switch has always been recommended to be on hand at all times. To make this work, I suggest to set it to two or three-foot (depending on how far apart you need to stand) or one foot of allowable out of your car. Put your bumper up and make sure it’s all level. Don’t leave the jack without it, the body roll in for it will make it harder to move later.
