Many techs don't even trust Jack Stands (I've had cheap sheet steel jack stands collapse on me - I was very lucky I got out from under the car in time), but use lengths of 6X6 or 4X4 Timber as backups to prevent catastrophic injury - preferably Pressure Treated. I have steel Handles from Home Depot screwed onto the ends of mine to make them easier to use.

Note I do not recommend Concrete Cinder Blocks. These can crack and split.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
