Hi

I have purchased a mid hight scissor car lift. It is the type that has two long flat plates either side the run under the cills. You have to put the black rubber blocks between the ramp plates and the car, my questions is can the rubber blocks go on the cill lip pointing down (like a 2 post ramp) or do I have to put them under the jacking points? TIA.....

Use the jacking points, sills are not designed to support the weight of the car.

As above, also I doubt you will be able to get the under trays off if resting on sills.

You definitely do not want to do that! I use something similar to these on my lift.

Never seen those before they look fantastic. Just ordered a similar design rubber set, have been using blocks of wood which can make it awkward. Thanks!

You are better off using the hard rubber version of the “puck” as the metal ones remove the paint/ sealant from the jacking points and then ………………………… they rust Surprised

There used to be a member on here that sold the solid plastic/resin jack point inserts, I have 2 and they are a must have.

Hi All

Thanks for the suggestions, im interested in the 4 jack pads for £26. Do you push these into the jacking points and twist so they stay in ? im using a scissor ramp. TIA

Yes locate and twist through 90 degrees, easy in and out.

I have the alloy ones which I put thin gasket rubber on between the alloy & where they sit. Perfect for lifting.

As a testament to how well they fit, I forgot I had them fitted & drove the full NC500 with them still attached! They stayed in all the way.

Stupid mistake which I wont make again!

Hi Guys I have found these the best by far:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-Porsche-Boxster-911-993-964-996-997-991-Cayman-Jacking-Pad-Jack-Pad-Rubber/273028442776?hash=item3f91c36a98:g:moUAAOSwU4hdqyTi

From personnel experience The Aluminum ones scratch off the paint on your jacking points and the Polyurethane ones can easily slip when in contact with metal.
