Jack up camaro question

Dumb question time. First time on forum. Have a floor jack but afraid to use it on the thin rail under my 2011ss. Is there a conversion kit or special jack that will work? Of course the scissor jack fits but I would like to use floor jack. Many thanks.

Hey thanks very much. I have heard of a conversion deal jack pads or something that you put on the frame (on the same spot where you would use scissor jack). Do you know where you can find them or if they are a viable option

I have a hard time putting a jack anywhere but a solid beam in the frame. So I cant help you there.

Try Eastwoods #43042 Floor jack adapter. Replaces the standard jack cradle with one that fits the body pinch welds.

Chris, since the others answered your question.....


CONGRATS on your ride and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, dad's, wive's, husband's, girlfriend's and boyfriend's here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!
