I bought these jacking blocks from my Lotus dealer when I saw the service guys using them. It makes jacking the car and putting it on jack stands so easy, I couldn't believe my eyes. The dealer wasn't selling them, but I talked one of the techs into letting me buy them.

They're pretty simple pieces. Just a section of 4x4 with one corner cut off so it will slide in right between where the aluminum belly pan is cut out to clear the tire and the control arm. The block rests against a tub reinforcement member and then you place a jack under the block. Once the car is in the air, you then place a jack stand under the marked jacking point (where you would normally place the jack) and you're all set.

I can't post pictures of the block in place because I don't have the car any longer. Sorry.

$25 plus $15 packing and shipping. And yes, I know that's a lot for a couple of sections of 4x4. But, I was too lazy to go out and make my own and considered it pretty reasonable when I bought 'em for $25. I suspect there are others out there who will also find it worth while to just pay for 'em rather than hassle with making their own.

I made 3 sets of varying heights myself after seeing them at the dealer. They are easy enough to cut on a 10" table saw. The 45 degree angle took two passes.

Made of Fine Scottish wood

So you can use to:
a)lift your car;
b) lift your body temperature (burn when done); and
c) lift your spirit (to use in making cask,and/or to smoke,whilst making your scotch)

(For the Scotch-making-educated, excuse my lack of fact. Work with me....)
