    I'd like to do my own tire rotations because I know darn well a shop isn't going to be very cautious taking off and reinstalling my wheels. I'm about to hit 10,000 miles and haven't rotated yet...

    I was looking at grabbing this jack and the ZL1 jack pad.

    Am I able to jack the car up in the center (B pillar) of the pinch weld and get both wheels off the ground that way? Or should I use a jack stand for one corner while I use the jack on the other?

    Must get a low profile jack to clear. Check aluminum racing jacks at Harbor Freight.
    Your Amazon won't clear at 4" I don'tthink.

    harbor freight jacks are junk.. but slester is right.. come to think of it, my lo profile jack BARELY cleared the puck

    Thanks for the recommendations. I thought 4" of clearance was enough but I'll have to double check. Don't know how much the ZL1 puck will take away from that number either. Would it be a bad idea then to only jack it up by the B pillar area (i.e. should I use front and rear jack points on each side)?
