Do you want to be able to get it onto stands... there might not be enough lift.
(Click for the whole Low Flying article.)
I look at Quickjacks a while back, still tempted.
I would recommend hockey pucks between the jack and car. I came to appreciate hockey pucks when I had my Exiges, they provide a solid base and don't tend to mark etc. It might help.
Sorry for the misunderstanding.
Only one thing I've come across on some car groups is to be careful the locks engage on both sides and you don't get asymetric lifting, I've read of a few people having problems in this area. Here is couple of examples of a problem with it:
Not really any different compared with hydraulics problems or locks not engaging on other lift systems, but with having two separate units, failure can have different consequences.
I use a QuickJack all the time with my 7. The two sides should be parallel, otherwise the rubber lift points will change horizontal spacing as you raise and lower the lift, which is bad and can be catastrophic. This is easily achieved since the rubber lift point support areas are quite wide. So have them inwards at the front and outwards at the rear of the car.
This is a unique 7 issue since most cars have the same spacing between the front and the rear of the lift points on the car.
