funny story...retarded jacks

ight, well, my buddy needed some help changing his brake pads, sparks, and filter in his audi a4...so we decide to tackle the pads first...bad idea...

so we jack up the car with a pair of jacks that turn out to be shit...after hours pain and cuts, the crap is done, we hear a squeak from the front and start to jack up the whole front of the car...we start with one side and then we move to the other...but on the second side the tire lifts off as we expected but the whole car starts to come towards us...the on the opposite side the jacks bends and snaps and the front brake disk slams to the ground, putting a huge hole in the asfault, meanwhile the car is sitting on 3 tires and one disk spineyes...then the story continues when we finally jack it up and start the sparks which are impossible to get out of his car...but this story is good for now...

it was really gay and scared the shit out of us litteraly spineyes laughsilly

but nothing happened that ruined his car...but it was certainly a big detour thumbsdown

them jack stands.. sure can't be too careful with them.. it also nice if you have one of those super big heavy duty ones attached also as a safety if any of the stands/jacks gives up..

put in the stands yes but i say leave the jacks in place in case something gives way..
