Black Key El Camino and Jackstands
03-04-2012, 11:26 AM
I bought El Camino by Black Keys the other day and so far I am enjoying the music. I am also pleasantly surprised to see all the 2nd generation Chrysler Minivans on the Album and booklet since usually musicians choose fancier vehicles. I did tear the cardboard a bit getting the booklet and CD out which is annoying so be careful when squeezing the two sides together.
I need to put my 95 Voyager on Jack Stands and I was wondering if the same points are shared by the Floor Jacks and Jack Stands? For the rear I use the front bracket that the leaf springs are bolted to and for the front I do not use the Control Arms, but the solid bit of metal the Control Arms attach to before you get to the part of metal that runs the width of the minivan and looks like a mini I-beam. I do plan on stacking four wheels two high under the Voyager as a precaution by the way and only having one end of the vehicle on Jack Stands at a time. I might put the Jack Stands on a piece of Plywood since my driveway is a dirt/gravel mixture, is that standard practice?
Feel free to point out anything that looks amiss and I look forward to your input.

Teddie, quite a few stars are Chrysler fans it seems. I might have to buy that cd. Sounds like you have everything pretty well figured out with the lifting, sometimes the owners manual give you the places to raise the vehicle. the main thing is not bending anything and to be very safe. Best of luck to you.
