Default Jack stands - 01-01-2018, 07:32 AM

Anyone know where to get the flat top jack stands for a good price? I have U shaped jack stands, and they dont look very compatible with the jack adapters needed

The adapters for the BMW lift-points are meant to be used on the actual jack primarily, IMO.

I use standard jack stands with saddle/u-shaped tops. I jack up the car with a jack and the adapter on the jack cup, and only put my jack stands under the front frame rail, or under the rear pumpkin. so the u-shape is not a problem.

Pelican has ESCO ones that could work.

Just a chime in, I have a set of the u shape stands, what I did was cut and cleaned the ends to fit in the pockets, worked like a charm. Also Torin has a nice 3k aluminum set with flat tops that are perfect, low profile pin style stands.
