I read on here befor not to jack up a T on center pot of the rear end just wonder why.Claton asked last week in a threat with no response. thanks Ross from Canada
I do it occassionally... no harm to the later strong cast iron pumpkins. But, the chassis is kinda tipsy that way....better support to lift one side at the end of the housing. Doing the center section lift is ok for say adjusting the brake rods when you need both wheels off the ground.
But if its an early '09-'11 then nope, too easy to perhaps wreck the thin press metal shells.
It may not be likely, but there's a possibility of bending the axle housings. It's better to jack up one side, near the wheel, put in a jack stand, then do the same on the other side.
Apologize in advance for this slightly off-topic question: has anyone used a two-post car lift to do under vehicle work? If so, what points did you contact on the frame and where is the center of gravity (longitudinally) of the vehicle?
It is possible to bend the axle tubes by jacking it up by the center.
Ted, Yes I had special made extentions for my lift. It is "clumsey" (?sp). I have a tudor.
Lewis, interesting. I'll have a 1914 touring once it's back together. Would be nice to use the lift for some things. Did your extensions just grab the frame rails? Any pix of extensions? Thanks!
