Right the 2 rods came out of there. I thought there was a 3rd one though? And how do the pieces fit together?

I bought that power built jack but it has not came in yet
01-03-2013 06:30 PM
whiteyj I carry some blocking to crib up the jack to minimize the gap prior to even starting to jack it up.
01-03-2013 06:26 PM
GoldenSahara00 The stock rods have one that goes into the notch on the turning knob, and another that goes through that to make it like a T handle to put more torque on it to turn it. There is also one (in my kit) that lets you use a 3/8th ratchet I believe. Pics of what you are using to turn it? You could try using something else around the garage. You gota be resourceful man.

It is a OEM jack

coolbreeze Get yourself a decent jack and a pair of jack stands. Good luck.
