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.

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

I have the pinch weld blocks. They are expensive but work perfectly. Well worth the money in my opinion.

Do you stack them on top of the shorter blocks that came with the jack? Just unboxed mine and on their own the lift connects with the Nismo side sills.

I'm considering putting plates on the two long sides, 4 screws per plate, two screws per block

Yes, I do put the pinch weld block on top of various height materials. Here's a couple pictures of how I set mine up.

Thank you kindly sir! No issues with the pinch weld blocks pressing on the side sills?

No, that is the added height that you need from the other materials. The pinch weld blocks actually do not touch the side sills the way I lift mine. Probably have 3/8 - 1/2" of clearance.

Be VERY careful stacking two tall ones. I used two tall ones and came very close to losing the car off of them.

During the lift or while you were working on it?

All of the above. I was putting an exhaust on my Juke and when I went to lower the car, I saw that the blocks were tilting. Immediately went into a case of "what if" cold sweats.
