why are you using any more than one jack?

 

jack front of car up, with one jack under the crossmember, place jack stands under car, lower car off jack, on to jack stands.

 

jack back of car up, with same jack under the diff, place jack stands under car, lower car off jack, on to stands.

 

done.

Sorry I'm on my phone so I can't see ur location but if ur in Sydney, it should be at the end of the aisle like how they stack up drinks on special at woolies. Should be the aisle near the frozen food already, far from the electronics.

when I went they had them stacked in a pile like they do with coke cans that are on special at coles...

 

They were practically in the middle of the whole warehouse wedged just outside one of the isles... took me a while to find them... had to stop and make a pig of myself with all the taste testing :lol: :lol: :lol:

OK, so went to Costco Melbourn again yesterday, checked the shelves, nothing. So I asked a guy who worked there, who I lucked out on, becuase he knew a fair bit about them.

 

He told me that guys were using them for temporary stump posts for houses or something of that nature and a local council saw this practice and reported it. The boxes did not specify 'for car use only' and as such all the jacks were sent back to the manufacturer to have this put on the box apparently an will be back in stores in a couple of weeks,

 

If anyone knows of one on ebay currently, or a spare they havent sold I NEED one for this weekend!

 

thanks

I explained how this process works a few posts above so it is still happening obviously.

 

It should be outlawed to buy so many! Costco ned to put a limit on it. What about jo blow who just wants one, some guy is either jacking up houses or selling them all on ebay for a profit. Monopoly!

update after i emailed and complained i got a phone call the same day and they had organized one for me to pickup.

 

I went in today and picked it up they said they had a few emails about the jacks as well.

 

They said they have two pallets out the back in receiving but they wont be on the shelf till Monday so if your after one i would suggest calling and asking if there are any on the floor before you rock up.

Just brought the Costco jack, highly recommend to anyone

 

On another note i rang that Steve guy on ebay that sells them item number 120767176278 just to see if it would work out cheaper than getting a membership, he told me he imports them and rebuilds them, when i asked to come down and have a look he wouldnt tell me where he was, he sounds very dodgy and rude on the phone

So arcan = costco jacks correct? Will probs grab one off ebay since there's no store in QLD.

 

Also to the people saying these are deathtraps, the only death trap is the moron who doesn't use jackstands regardless of what jack they're using.
