Jack and jack stands

There are many moments when it simply is necessary to get under a car. It’d be very convenient to have provisions such as a lift of any kind in the garage. I don’t have that luxury, so like most others I work with a jack and jack stands.

A jack and a set of stands should be found in every garage. Mine are from Omega and weren’t too cheap. I figure that this equipment really doesn’t allow for some cheap alternative as they really shouldn’t fail.

The jack and stands are matched up pretty well, meaning that the jack stands fit under the car fully extended when I have jacked up the car to the maximum heigth. The stands are pretty short and I still have to squirm into place. The room under the vehicle is quite limited. In the (probably not so near) future I will be getting an extra set of stands that are taller.
