Any ideas would be great.
I was always nervous doing it too.
So, what I do is take a 2x6 on end and slip it NEXT to the oil pan on the passenger so that the wood is on edge against the block, but next to the pan for alignment. Then jack up the wood. That way you're only jacking up the block. It'* probably me just being anal...but it'* one of those "feel better" situations!
