^ Strong jack stands are extremely important for any work that is done under the car. Use only jack stands that are designed for the purpose. Blocks of wood, concrete, bricks, etc. are not safe or suitable substitutes.
A jack should be used only to raise the vehicle and should not be used to support the car for a long period. Always use jack stands to support a raised vehicle.
Jack stands are available in several styles. The best ones are made of heavy material for strength, have a wide base for stability, and are equipped to positively lock in their raised positions. Get the best ones available.
