PSE Install...How To Safely Raise Rear of Car

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I need some general advice. I will be doing installing the PSE myself in about two weeks and I was just thinking, minus a lift, what is the safest way to raise the back end of the car up to do the work. I have a set of ramps but from what I have heard the install is easier to do with the wheels off so I am assuming two jack stands should do it. Should two jack stands be alright or should I go with four stands? Also are there any reccomendations for stands?

Thanks for the advice.

Just got this done last week. My technique was pretty low tech. Just a jack and chocks on the opposite front wheel, and one side at a time. Not much force necessary, everything comes off and goes back on fairly easy. While working on one side, I used the other side as a template to put everythig back exactly as they were. Total work time of two hours, taking my sweet time and checking everything.

Bad advice my friend. You should ALWAYS use jack stands while working under a car. Do not use cement blocks or any other back woods Bubba tool. Use the right weight rated stand. While you have the rear up and off the ground and on the stands, it wouldn't hurt to chalk your front tires too. A couple pieces of wood will do. Also before you jack up ANY car, put the car in Park or gear with the Parking brake on. ;)

Thanks for all of the advice. I got the PSE ordered through SunCoast, unfortunatly they are out of stock and they expect to receive it in 2-3 weeks. This does not make me happy considering I am heading down to visit the parents in FL in 2 weeks for vacation and the PSE is for my Dad's car. I guess there is still a slim chance it will get to my parents house in time and I will be able to put it on and experience the difference :)
