Do you know if other branches would adjust the price to reflect the Kanata branch? I called another branch & the lady said they can't adjust their price to match another branch :/ but i heard from people here that it's possible.

I have noticed when using smaller jacks if I don’t position the jack perpendicular to the vehicle, the rear wheel would lift up. Should the jack be perpendicular to the vehicle when jacking the car up?

Completely pointless pic

First of all, you're not going to be lifting from there, and second of all you're going to be putting jack stands on underneath

I think for simple tire changes 3" is enough, i generally only take it up an inch higher than required for tire changes.

I am concerned about the look in that picture, back wheel does seem to be off the ground and jack cannot be stable. I like the Costco Torin jacks are the are wide and solid, even with tire changes i wouldn't get anywhere near a car unless the jack is solid and stable, not worth getting killed because i saved a couple of dollars on a jack.

Could be the pavement is severely sloped, if hat is the case i wouldn't be jacking from that location.

Hopefully it is the angle of the picture, but is worrisome!

While the proper method is to jack and use jack stands, I have stands but for tire changes i put on the emergency brake, wheel chock a tire, jack and place one of the tires under the side of the vehicle as a safety. If i go under the car then obviously jack stands.

Not say my method is right, but works for me.

Also some vehicles today have bottom plastic skirting all round cannot get to the underneath jack points, have to utilize the side mounts and they are only wide enough in most cases for a single jack point. They do have a special jack stand (Rennstand) that is capable of being used for the pinch weld, the jack itself pushes up so that the rennstand stand and jack can be used simultaneously.

For me i prefer to jack from underneath the vehicle, tire under the pinch weld area for safety and don't see me changing. Same process with no access to underneath i jack from the pinch weld and again tire as a safety.

Again i have jack stands, basically use when i need to work under the car itself not on tire changes. With some modern vehicles you have no access to underneath jack points unless you start removing plastic underneath cover pieces....so pinch weld is the best way with the special Rennstand dual purpose item.

Car manufacturers try and make it harder for individuals to service anything on their cars these days.
