If you don’t trust your local garage to properly repair your car you’ll want to make sure you have the right tools before starting a project like that yourself. This Lift N Secure jack system from Craftsman for example is a far safer solution to elevating your car than say a cinder block and wood plank would be.
Like with a standard jack you roll it under the car, position it carefully and then pump the handle to lift the vehicle until you have enough clearance to get underneath. But instead of then using a separate brace to keep the vehicle up, the ‘handle section’ of the Lift N Secure can be separated from the ‘lifting section’ which then remains underneath the car. The jack includes 2 of these ‘lifting sections’ allowing you to evenly elevate the car and making the job a whole lot easier.
The Lift N Secure is available on the Sears website for $279.99.
