Default Helping jacking Z06 for self home garage oil change.

I know this has been asked before but what is the best/ easiest/ most affordable way to jack up my Z06 with stage 2/3 front splitter and side skirts?i currently have a garage lol, I will purchase a jack or 2 if needed. Race ramps? Pucks? Jack stands? Do I need to raise the rear as week or will most of the oil still drain with front jack up only? Thank you in advance. I feel confident jacking the car, just a lol uncomfortable about using jack stands.

Race Ramps are the easiest.

If you want a cheap route, get a hockey puck and an eyelet lag screw from home depot and make your own puck. That should cost you 4-5 bucks.

But i wanted something less ghetto so i bought hinson pucks. They were 2 for 40 at the time i bought it.

Once you use a puck to jack the car, (wait you never jacked a corvette before? lol), put the stand here, at least this is where i put it when i do my oil changes.



This gives just enough room to access both drain plugs and to get to the filter. I have a stage 3 front splitter and i have no issues.

Although this spring is when i'm dropping the car on the stock bolts so i might have a bit more difficulty getting the jack under the car. A piece of wood under the front tire before i jack the car should do it.

Not the easiest but probably the cheapest.

Check the owners manual for the front and rear cradle jacking points.

For the front you have to lift from the side front frame jacking points and place 2 or 3 2 x 10's under the front wheels for clearance to slide a low profile jack under the car to reach the front cradle jack point. I use hockey pucks between the jack and the car.

What about for those that lowered their cars on stock bolts? You think those ramps would still be good? What is the part number btw? thanks
