I have a 1.5 Ton low-profile jack and it seemed to struggle lifting the car. I couldn't fit my jack stand underneath to secure it, hence why I put it back down.

Thanks for the reply though.

I got it on Amazon I think it was 175 bucks
It lifts the car with out any problems.
I tried the impact for ha ha's and it worked good too! I still use a torque wrench, and it all runs off the car battery (or 12 volts)

You are braver than I. I tend to use floor jacks not scissor jacks.

1and 1/2 is all you need

You wanted to know where to put the jack stand. Here is a good place for the front.

I'm running into this with my 1LE... Looking to pick up a floor jack and that one from Harbor Freight caught my eye... I'm not in the mood to buy another $300 jack from Sears.
