New Toys .... New Tools. If you don't have a floor jack, you might want to check out a deal that Sears has with a 3 ton floor jack and a set of jack stands thrown in for "free". Not too expensive and well worth the time savings if you have a storage location. There's a "nub" under the front of your car where you can put a floor jack and take up the whole front end at once. Put the stands under the fixed frame, lower onto stands, and you're all set. Of course, I'm sure I don't have to tell you to NEVER work on a car on a jack, only on properly located jack stands. You don't want to hear the stories of guys that made a mistake on that point. Bob
