Borrow time on your lift
 
Does anyone have a lift I can borrow to do a quick brake pad swap ahead of this weekend's Autocross. Last weekend's DE wore out my brakes.

Happy to repay your kindness in beer, ammo.....whatever!

If it's just brake pads, those can be done with a jack and jackstands in your driveway. No lift required.

If you don't have a floor jack or jackstands, it might be time to invest in some tools.

Also, if an eventual option, QuickJack is great for pads, wheels, adjusting sway bars. Less than 30 mins to raise car, change pads, and lower car, even when tired from a day at the track.

They don’t take up much room. I keep them squeezed together underneath my car when not using them. Just pull them to the edges of the car when I need them.

How far you willing to drive? :) Have an open lift but not nearby.

Your lucky day, they are on sale at Costco.

Appreciate all the quick replies here! I got lucky and had someone call this afternoon -- so problem is solved.

Thanks to everyone who offered to help!

Proper tools, especially if on sale, are still a good idea. ;)
