    When jacking up the back is it better to jack under the pinch welds with the ZL-1 jack pads, or, jack under those black pads which are very close to the rear pinch welds?

    Also when jacking up the front is it better to jack under the pinch welds or jack further in under the frame?

    I'm sure it's not the case; but, those pinch weld jack points seem a bit "non structural" looking?

    My guess is that it doesn't matter, but just wanted to get your valued opinion.

    Thank you !

    I use the frame up front and the round black pedestals in the rear to have a flat surface when raising the car.

    Just did tire rotation over the weekend with two jacks. Front under unibody with low profile jack and then when partially up used standard jack on factory puck in the rear.

    Lifted right up...very stable and allowed quick wheel rotation. Reversed process to get it back on the ground.

    I use the ZL1 pinch weld device on both, works great. No slip issues when using the pinch welds.

    I must have the wrong ZL1 jack pads. I just tried to use them on the rear of mine today.....No Bueno....they flipped off. Just used the jack with the rubber pad in the center.

    That's odd. I just got mine and I installed my Z26 pads just yesterday. They literally stay put. You have to pull out slightly on the plastic (in my case) and it slips right over the edge. The two rare earth magnets keep it firmly in place. I did add a strip of duck tape to the bottom so the floor jack had a bit more grip. No issues, it's a nice part that prevents beating that area up.

    I bought these directly from their website. Are yours the same?

    No...Yours look very different than what I received....no wonder the ones I have don't work.
