New! Heavy use magnetic JACK PAD!

We now have the prototype made of the heavy use magnetic jack pad.

They are made of aluminum and will fit all late model Camaro's including the Convertible.

How much? And do they stay in place on the car or do we move it around to each side?

Yes they stay in place with the embedded magnets! I can not show price at this thread. I will have the prices up on the tools and suspension sponsor area. Not much more than the original mag jack pads.

Do these have any potential for scratching?

That's a nice tool right there!
When initially jacking up my '14 I noticed the jack had very little room before the arm hits the under side of the ZL side skirts. This would stop that problem.

Looks like I'm going to need to upgrade mine. Just the other day I was thinking these would be better in Aluminum.

The aluminum ones are for like a shop or someone that use the every day. No need if you do not jack your car up every day.

Only the bottom of the pinch weld, that is why our original ones we still make and are made of plastic.

How powerful is the magnet? Could they be left on permanently?

We will make a deal anyone who has the standard jack pad.

The reason we make it, is because members have asked for a more robust pad.

I my self use the plastic jack pad.

We have found on the later Camaros, the pinch weld is getting wider and some owner want to jack the car up at a extreme angle, I myself do not like to do that.

One thing is that the heavy use mag jack pad works on the Camaro, Challenger, Ford Focus. One other difference is it picks the car up by the bottom of the pinch weld only, just like the in car jack does, if we had one.

No! You do not want to leave them on, because they could catch on something.
I thought of using a thumb screw type, but not a good idea.
I have left my standard jack pads on by accident and they did not fall off.

They are only a improvement if you do not jack the car up at a high angle.
I myself use 2 floor jacks to not put a twist in the car as I jack it up.

Define high angle. I am jacking now 7 to 8 inches to get wheel dollies under the tires. I have both sets the older and newer for the increased angle. Love them use them alot and they are getting cut through the bottom since the material is soft. Do the aluminum ones get the wear marks, can they not be used for the higher angle? thks

Funny story...

So I just took off all my wheels to clean them and put them back on. Drove around for 45 minutes...and realized when I got back I never removed my pad. Sure enough...it was still there when I got home!

Awesome! And they work well!
