    Default Jack of all trades?

    Hi guys

    I'm looking to buy a trolley jack and axel stands. Can anyone recommend how much/where to get them?

    I've seen the 5 piece lifting kit on Halfords site for £74. Is it worth it or should I shop around?

    Ta guys

    Or could try Screwfix http://www.screwfix.com/prods/66742/...onne-Combi-Kit

    £28.00 inc VAT plus £5.00 P&P seems OK?

    the only prob you have is you want to lift the car to about 450mm to get under it an give your self some room so spend about £50 on a jack i ts better in the long run
    or Costco sell some nice one's at £80 a jack
