Watch some chrisfix on youtube. I'd recommend that you start with the tire change video and you'll see that your procedure is not far off from what everyone else is doing. Then watch his oil change video and you'll see its not much harder. You can find an oil change video for your specific car if you need helping finding all the bolts and what not. I find chrisfix does an excellent job of explaining the process that's applicable on most, if not all cars, rather than specific models that make you question your sanity. Just make sure to use jack stands!

Has anyone seen any Arcan ones in the GTA?

I saw a bunch of Torin ones at the Ancaster location on Saturday.

I hope this goes without saying, but by seeing some of the posts in this thread... ONLY USE WITH 4 JACK STANDS, DO NOT GET UNDER A CAR WITHOUT IT BEING SECURE Do not use only 2 jack stands, cars can easily slide off when just 1 side is raised. It takes 5 mins, don't be lazy.

Sorry but that goes against numerous manufacturers safety instructions for jack stands, which advise never to use 4 jack stands to support the entire car all at once:

Whoever fed you that is out to lunch.

2 stands is sufficient everyone. Just make sure the car is in park, ebrake is on and put blocks on the opposite wheel of the side you are jacking up. Blocking the wheel prevents the car from moving forward or backwards which could cause your jack to start to tilt as you jacked the car up.

The Torin is on backorder online. Just ordered one for delivery between April 13th and 17th if anyone is interested. I'm not going near a warehouse with hundreds of people lined up outside to get in.

Performance pretty much as expected... took 6-7 strokes to get the tire off the ground (I jack at the jack point closest to each tire). Definitely easier to maneuver into position compared to the all-steel Pittsburgh jack I used to use.

The pinch weld "puck" that I bought is awesome - it is magnetic so you can position it, then stand up and maneuver the jack into place if you like. Highly recommended even though it is $20 https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07Z63 ... UTF8&psc=1 . There are tons of similar ones, but make sure you buy one with magnets (i assumed it was a gimmick when ordering). Just make sure you pull it off the car when you're finished changing tires.

With many cars you can position the jacks pad on the inside of the pinch weld or in other words I guess behind the pinch weld where the jacking tabs are shown. This is where the solid place on the vehicle is anyway.
