Does anyone still sell these for the 2002 35th anniversary model.
I have one 3 ton jack with a 20" lift and would like to know if I can jack the car up to put if on 4 ramps by using the k-member(not to have it crush) and rear end to lift. I read somewhere that you could damage a rear end by lifing it up by the chunk. Would there be a tendency for the car to tilt side to side if lifting on one point of the k-member.

i know for a fact if you lift from the center pumpkin of the rear end you will be fine, as for the k member im not sure, how tall are the ramps you have to put under the car, if they are more than 15 inches it probably wont work because of suspension travel. You might just have to lift it up from each side under the a arm

The K frame is the strongest structure in the whole car, you won't crush it.

Actually you can dent it in if your jack has a small head on it or get rough with it. Always a good practice to spread the load with a board or something.

The area around my tilt seems very loose. If I grab the wheel I can move it side to side a bit. What is required to fix it?
My shifter shaft rotates. At first I thought it was the knob. I assume the vulcanized rubber has let loose on the shaft causing it to rotate. Which way should the notch in the shaft face?
Anyone know of a decent rear shock for the WS6 that is not hyper expensive.
