I thought quickjack had rubber blocks with grooves to accommodate pinch welds?

Smells so bad. Combination of that raw Chinese rubber, damp ash tray full of butts and skunk. Yes, I had a room mate from high school for a year that...

That overload test Is impressive

But still , I’ve never needed hardware for a quick jack

I just tell them to get out of their car, quickly

Successful lift!

Placed the rubber blocks along the pinch weld by the arrows on the plastic molding

You do have to mind the brake line towards the rear but it seems like it’s safe to lift here. I will still reinforce with jack stands

Great, a real car / Volvo on the lift. I'm still cleaning and reorganizing the garage. Seems like I'm never gonna get there :cry:.

OK, another fellow sufferer. Looks like you and I are gonna have to encourage one another to lose that weight. Oh wait, that's another seemingly impossible unrelated issue. However, now I'm motivate to get in there but (there's the but again) it's hot all day here at this time so it does not help :( .
