If you lift the car there be sure to first put a block on the shock
tower to protect the rebound rubber from crushing. If you damage it,
you can't replace it without removing the shock, etc! See photo

 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 IIRC (RTFM).

  Fellow Listers, Any of you have a QuickJack car lift? I'd like your
opinion of what you think of it, either the 5000# or the 7000#. Is it
suitable for lifting a Healey? Thanks in advance, Elton
