Do you use any padding to try saving the nice etchings, or jack it straight on the aluminum block?

No care from me about etchings, my jack already has rubber padding. However there's just a little bit of contact on the metal edge of the jack where it is exposed. Not a big deal

Hockey puck fits the HF aluminum jacks just fine for that

Using a puck adapter when jacking my car up isn't bad. Trying to align the puck adapters resting on the jack stands with the reciever pads when lowering is arduous. Especially since my garage floor is a little uneven. It's so nice to just raise my car and lower it on jack stands like every other car I've owned. Simple pleasures. Thanks OP

Installed.
Thank you.
Required some finesse, I would not want to have someone else do it. I would want to feel my self that the special nut gets the two grooves into the right place

This part you need to "feel" it is in place. You can't see it. I also used anti seize to make sure I can unscrew it few years down the road.

Just finally caved and ordered some. The plastic pads on my car are beyond toast and I swap wheels often enough I finally decided they are worth the investment.
Thanks for making these and looking forward to them arriving!

I was in the same place with the plastic pads - Ordered this earlier this month and they're awesome! Curious how many of the first production run are still available?

There is just one set left. I was holding them for a buddy, but they are available now.

Got these installed today along with doing titanium studs yesterday. Had to have some assistance cause they didnít fit with my carbon fiber side-skirts, ultimately we had to dremel the carbon fiber away around it a bit. Looking forward to much easier track wheel swaps in the future though. The plastic ones were a PITA
