As the late Mr. Jobs would say: "One more thing:"
The QJ has some specific maintenance instructions. All the pivot points
need to be kept lubed--they recommend white lithium grease--but there
are no zerks, just holes in the tubes. I bought a pistol grip grease
gun and a few tubes of WL grease, plus a tapered nozzle to inject the
grease; it's messy and wasteful, but the grease gets where it needs to
be. Also, there is an air cylinder on each to assist lowering; I noticed
when I got my car up on the QJ and put jack stands under the rear
springs and front A-arms to relieve the springs the QL would not
completely lower from fully extended without weight on them. I think the
manual says they are not designed to self-lower until they're just a few
inches off the ground. The air cylinders spec 50psi with the QJ lowered
