    987 & Jack Stands

    Anyone have info or pics of good jack stand points for the rear of the 987? Doing some wheel work and need to put the car up on stands for a day.

    It's a bit different from a 1963 Studebaker Hawk I'm sure

    Thanks in advance!

    Don't have pics of a Boxster but pick up 4 hockey pucks and use them on top of the stands to better cushion the underside of the car.

    Re: 987 & Jack Stands

    I haven't figured out how anyone jacks up their boxsters at jacking points along the rail. How do you put the car on a jackstand when your jack is currently holding up that corner of the car at the point where you're supposed to put the jackstand?

    Every other car I've owned has had a specific jack point at the front and rear end of the car so you could lift either end off the ground and stick two jackstands underneath the jack points on the rails. I've never heard any boxster owners mention a jack point such as this.

    Re: 987 & Jack Stands

    I don't think Porsche:

    A - wants owners putting the car up on "jacks", full stop
    B - lifting one end of the car and not the other, which may be common practice with the do-it-yourselfer but doesn't fall under the category of "things to recommend in the owners manual thereby opening up the possibility of litigation in the event of f-up"

    The lift points on the car are defined on page 237 of the U.S.-spec owners manual for 06.

    Re: 987 & Jack Stands

    Oh, true to all that but:

    1. What are the other Boxster owners doing with these jack and jack stand pucks? Are they jacking the car away from the proper jack point so that they can put the jackstand in the proper location, or vice-versa?

    2. The manual defines the lift points. It does not define a jack stand point that is separate from the lift point.

    Porsche has a clinical aversion to anyone other than their official mechanics touching anything on the car, but I know there's a bunch of guys here dorking around underneath them regardless...

    Edit: I finally clicked stubenhocker's link. So people are just placing the jackstands at points around the car that seem logical. Okay then.
