so Ive got jackstands under 4 corners of my car
after I was done putting it up, just as I was about to leave the garage, Im like "that tire looks like its still on the ground" - bend to check - "it is!... sht" so I check the others and so are they all on the ground.
now my car looks like a freak cause its up in the air, but the tires hang down far enuf to still rest on the ground. like a damn truck.
additionaly, the jack I was using had lost its handle, so it was replaced with a longer aluminum pole wich was bending when I put up the front of the car. the jack was absicly as high as it could go, but the jackstands are on the lowest setting - the only way I could get them under there.
the wheels have no free movement so I assume that there is still enuf weight on them to defeat the purpose of having it up in the first place.
so how can I get it up higher without buying a larger jack? (currently, not much money)
only thing I could think of was to put some decent sized plywood under the jack so its higher, lifts higher, etc
ideas? something I did wrong?
