Was wondering if anyone has ordered or using jacking pucks for your C7 and if
so which ones and where did you order them from?

Thanks,
Kevin
 
I saw another Western Corvette member who had one of these. He would use it at car shows to remove his wheels to detail the car. It was fairly compact in size. Plug it into your cigarette lighter and away you go. It worked real slick. Said he bought it at Princess Auto surplus but they haven't had them for years. Found it on eBay.

That looks pretty good but I don't know if it will be low enough as I am going to lower the car on the stock bolts.
I like the idea of the hockey pucks, will maybe go that route.
Thanks,

Hi, just purchase them today from RPI design, paid $46.49US incl shipping to Canada. The one I bougt are lock in live in place, item number C7-955. There is a nice YouTube video on them. I did lots of research on this and believe this are best so far.

I use hockey pucks they fit in my jacks cradle perfectly, get then at Canadian tire for about $1.29, got 6 of them........(a couple of spares)
 
I know people who have had their C5 aluminum ones fall out if they left them there. Wouldn't recommend leaving them in all the time .

Left mine in all last year and they were good. They are in there very good so I don't think they are going anywhere. If one falls out, whatever. Its a bit of plastic that I can easily re-order.
 
Thanks guys for your input and Thanks Jake for the pics. I think I will go with the snap in rubber ones that will stay in.
I have to get one of those Jacks like you have Jake! The hunt is on.

Going to give those DIY pucks a try. Won't leave them in all the time but they would be nice to have occasionally, like when I take it to the dealer for an oil change as they do put it up (no oil change pit). With all the pucks I have in the house better than spending $50 for a set.
 
Just a little hint for those that need it:

Posting pictures in any other way than stacked one on the other will result in extending the screen too widely, which doesn't allow for quick and easy reading or viewing.

All this means is that web addresses for pictures should be one on the other and only takes a short time to adjust in your posts.
In other words one url to each line.

Everyone will be most appreciative for everyone's effort.

If you need help with this let me know. I'd be glad to help.

Colin.

Princess Auto in the boat section they have rubber stoppers, $3.99 each, 3 inches round, works great. Look like a hockey puck but a little softer.
