QuickJack Lift System

I had raised the QJ past the first set of stops, then began lowering them onto the stops. Keep an eye on the far cam. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZvtJ0LaNzw

You mean at the pinch weld? Yeah it will do that if you dont have the block with the notch in it. I dont, but Im thinking of just cutting a notch on the block to fit the pinch weld.

Bleeding is definitely important with these. I didn't bleed mine properly and the two ramps were going up at a drastically different rate.
I'd recommend for new users to stand straight in front of the car when you lift the first time.
I was on one side the first time I raised mine and didn't realize how much differently they were raising. Could have been real ugly if I hadn't stopped and lowered it back down.
Once I bled the unit properly (i.e. standing up so the air would rise) then it has been golden.

Lol yes that's what I meant. I'm thinking about doing the same... after I mash the metal back together

100%. I've learned the hard way to read every page of the damn manual and just do what it says
