Changed the spark plugs on a stingray today. Was a pain. #2 I couldn't get the socket wrench on it. The header was in the way. Good thing I had a spark plug socket that allows me to put a open end wrench on it. And #1 was really bad. I could not get to it. I some how managed to get it off, but I then spent the next half hour trying to get the new one back in. No luck. I ended up taking the AC compressor off. It was dead on not even hooked up. Once that was gone the plug went right in.

lol. its pretty pointless on such a light jack. i could see where it would be useful with a heavier truck jack. but for a 15" 2 tonner you can just slide the thing over lol

Neat and all, but ya, a bit pointless. I've never had a problem jacking it up a bit then wiggling it in place. The jack I have moves real fast with a pump until it contacts something, then moves slow.
