Jack stands with WW sides - how?
Ok I wanna paint my brake calipers, so I need to put all four wheels up in the air (no lift, sorry laughsilly).

How can I jack up the front wheels and get them on jack stands (the front jack points don't seem big enough to accomplish this)?

The rear should be no problem.. I'll just use a jack to raise the entire back end at once.

If anyone has pics, this would be great. thumbsup I read the installs section already, but didn't really see an answer to my question.

Thanks in advance! wave

are you using the stock jack or do you have one of those w/the long handle? if you have the long handle one you lift the car underneath the front arm (it holds your strust in place, you know what im talking about) and you just slide the stand next to it.

well that answers another part of my question which was:

can I just use the jack stands right behind the wheel (on that black "arm" you described)?

I'm assuming yes.

I was going to probably use the stock jack because it will fit into the "grooves" of the jack points under the car. I also have a longer jack but I don't know if it will work well because of how much the ww sides hang over (I'm afraid to crack them).

use the stock jack and just lift the car high enough to slide the stands on the black arm thing. that's what i had to do 'cuz my car is really low in the front, so the stock jack is the only thing that I can use to lift the front high enough to slide stand underneath the black arm thingy.

hope this helps

^ Ok thanks guys.

Sorry, I'm stupid laughsilly, but do you put the jack stands in the MIDDLE or on the edges (right behind where the tires go)?

Yeah, it's hard to explain about the sideskirts if you don't have them, but they kinda hang over the edge where you are supposed to jack it up, if that makes sense.

I know you don't jack it up ON the sideskirts. Refer to my above post happywink

Thanks for the help v3n0m (and everyone else) thumbsup

No, I'm not blonde, I just like to make sure of things before I go out there and waste time trying to figure it out for myself. To me, that's smart idunno
