    I have those for my MB, not yet had reason to use them, but also tried ice hockey pucks on axle stands when I needed to get my 968 completely off the ground. Made the mistake of getting one side up first and onto the axle stands, wheels off, then was lifting the other side when the pucks allowed the whole car to slide sideways and off the axle stands onto the driveway.:shock::shock::shock:

    The axle stand pads have slots underneath that help keep them on the stand top . I bourght a really big jack to lift the car up on the diff or engine sump pad to try to stop any sideways movement

    I think the biggest lesson was, if you need all 4 wheels off the ground, lift the front then the back, OK loosen the wheel nuts slightly before lifting but do not take the wheels off until the car is settled on all 4 axle stands! Lucky for me there's a big metal bar behind the 968 rear plastic bumper, and I had a second trolley jack to lift the car back up and release the other trolley jack which had jammed under the car.

    And Breathe!!

    The 997 slipped off the low profile trolley jack on me as the castors jammed on the tarmac on the drive :-( crease in the outer sill which cost me a few £££'s to rectify.

    Is there a type that fits between an axle stand top (3-ton ratchet type) and the standard rubber pad (body lift support point)?

    Will the U-shape axle stand top damage the rubber pad, if goes directly under it?

    I want to put car on four axle stands to paint calipers - will raise front, and then back, using jack under the front/rear axle central support points and stick axle stands under the body lift points on each side ... if that makes sense. I'll use pieces of wood to distribute weight for the central axle support points, but not for the rubber pads, hence the question.

    There is such a pad and I have 2 of them bourght from eBay I tried to get another 2 a few weeks ago but couldn't find them again . I think they were advertised as fitting BMW's but also fitted MB in the small print . Hopefully someone can post a link for whoever is making them at the moment , they are very good .

    Have a look at post #1.

    It's an official regulation hockey puck with a rubber block glued to it. As are the others (except #13)

    One should always be careful when jacking any vehicle up as the jacks rarely lift straight.

    After my hiccup with the 968 I bought those for the S204, they live in the boot of the car, but I've yet to have need to use them as bar 1 occasion the only times the wheels have been off the ground was at a garage. The one other occasion (wheel change at side of road) I used the car's own jack which is shaped to fit the jacking point. I'll try them IF I decide to change to my winter wheels this year (didn't bother last year), but it's so mild I'm still on my normal Eagle F1's.
