Speaking of wishing I had a QuickJack...I'm with Kiz I wish I had a Quickjack anytime I want to do something quickish like brake bleeding. I doubt I would do a clutch with it though.
I have the Esco's and trust them. Even so if I'm underneath I pull the wheels and put them under the frame.
I use a floor jack on a front side jack point to raise the nose enough to get my low profile jack to the center point so I don't need ramps.
This was the first time getting the Cayman up on 4 jack stands and figuring out the best way to do it took like an hour.
The handle of my jack was interfering with the jack stand so I couldn't place it in the right spot. :grrrr:
So I had to bring the jack in from the front of the car, but of course I didn't have enough clearance so I put a 2x8" underneath. Tried again. Nope, still not enough clearance. Added more wood until I could slide it in far enough to raise it.
Normally I don't need to get the car this high for things like oil changes or brake bleeding, but I'm doing the water pump & thermostat and wanted plenty of room. But getting the front left side so high raised the entire front end, so now I'm scrambling to get wood under the right side tire so the chassis isn't flexing all over the place. íAy dios mio!
