Jack Stand Specs and Prices
It's kind of like seat belts and labels on cigarettes - Sure feels like Big Brother is trying to live our lives for us...
Yet, on the other hand, everyone with half a brain knows it probably IS a smart thing to do...
As for our 'official opinion' - We're not your damnned Mother! Play your life however you want, but here's how we play ours - If we're just doing a quickie brake adjustment or looking for a coolant leak we don't bother with jack stands. But, if we are planning to be under a vehicle to install a starter, change trans fluid or anything else taking more than just a few minutes we DO use them. So, there - Take it or leave it!
Standard Professional Quality Jack Stands generally have a welded steel frame with a cast iron saddle. The saddle arm has notches cast into it and can be repositioned up and down by releasing a holding lever and resetting on the next higher or lower notch.
Heavier Duty Jack Stands are somewhat primitive and use a simple steel pin for repositioning the Steel Saddle up or down in increments of from 1 1/2" to 2".
