Quickjack car lift - opinions?
#11
There have been many threads over the years about quickjacks on the Garage Journal. It seems they are popular with racers for track side maintenance. Do a search there and you can read until your eyes bleed.

Here is one example.

I hate it when my eyes bleed, lol.
I have changed a rear end sitting in the road using two bumper jacks. Now that is shaky for sure. Most are pretty safe or they would be in court all the time getting sued.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

I've been relooking at other options and have now settled on this design from a UK company CJ Auto (might have seen something very similar from Jegs?). Just waiting on a quote for delivery to france as all 4 would weight 200kg. Each lift raises vertically so no roll forward/backwards for the car, raises from wheels (rather than under chasis rails) so better access all around the car, including under the sill area, and total weight capacity about 2.7 tons. Hydraulic lift but via foot pump rather than electric so a bit of exercise. Advantage over the quicklift will be that you can raise a single wheel up and also just the front and/or back separately. Lift height 18.5 inches so enough to effectively do most maintenance really. Base price about $1500. If I go with them I'll post a review.

If you want safety use the Quick Jack to lift the car and then rest the car in jack stands.
