Re: First time lift and oil change

Tom is my friggin hero. Anyone that could pull off that repair in a parking lot deserves serious kudos.

Re: First time lift and oil change

I just use the suspension or cradle when jacking the car up. For changing the oil a 4 post lift and a Harbor Freight funnel on a telescoping pole connected to a drain can on wheels works great!
