Cleaning The Wheels

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, it's been a while Im afraid but great to be back and catch up whats new in the Lexus world.

I wasnt sure where to put this, so Mods, if its in the wrong place I do apologise

I've made the decision that to make sure the wheels are cleaned and protected properly :winky: I need a trolley jack and axle stands. I have found 'what looks like a bargain but am a firm believer 'there is no such thing as a free lunch'

I'm not convinced the URL below from Halfords will be man enough for the barge (LS) Kerb weight 2055 KG or what ever that is in old money :unsure:

Would also appreciate any information/tools to stand the wheels on while cleaning that will protect 100% of the face :thumb:

As always, your advise very much appreciated

It says it is 2T capacity so it should be no problem. It won't be taking all of the car's weight on the jack and the same with the axle stands. You will only be lifting 1 axle at a time. If you look at the axle weights front and rear you should find it well within the capabilities of the equipment in the link you supplied.

The only problem I have had with jacks like those is the suspension travel on BIG cars. On my old SDI Vitesse, it couldn't go high enough to actually lift a wheel off the ground when jacking on the body points :crybaby: I suspect my GS would be the same, or very close to it, an LS may be even worse?
