    Where to lift

    Just want to confirm how to best use my new quick jack. Should I place the rubber blocks directly in line with the jack point arrows centered under the pinch weld? I assume I should also take a circular and make a slot for the pinch welds? How deep?

    Maybe. If after a few lifts I think the blocks are a PITA then rails are a no-brainer. Now, I just wanna know how to safely use the kit I already have.

    I've always used the pinch welds on a traditional jack. Not sure why the quickjack would be any different. If it's a big concern, you can always get one of those hockey pucks with the cutout for the pinch weld.

    Lifting by the pinch welds is fine imo.
    Frost White RS is best RS.

    I just got my QJ setup last night for the first time. I didn't want to screw around trying to use just the blocks, so I bought 4 of these: https://www.amazon.com/Potauto-Unive...gateway&sr=8-3

    Worked fantastic. BUT, when lowering it, make sure both sides are moving. I had one side stop moving last night and I didn't catch it right away..... Had to fully extend them to get them even, the drop it again.

    Irrelevant to his question specific to the quickjack, which is FAR superior to jacking rails.

    You could grab four hockey pucks and groove them instead. I have also used 4x4 timber as well(other vehicles) but it would be a little tricky on the RS as there are plastic parts near the jacking locations you need to be mindful of. And yes use the factory pinch weld locations marked on the lower body panels to get a nice balance once up in the air.

    Something like the Quickjack that lifts evenly across all four points, just like a two-post lift, is fine with a flat block against the bottom of the pinch welds.

    You don't think I need to cut groves in the rubber blocks that came with the lift?

    Based from the pic below, I think it should be ok.
