Differences Between Ramps, Jacks and Lifts

Lifts are tools that raise the vehicle and support it. jack stands are supports with brackets and a base. Use a jack to raise the car, and then position the jack stands under the vehicle.

Choose ramps when you need to work on the vehicle without removing the wheels. If you need to work on the brakes, use jack stands or a lift. You can safely remove the wheels while the vehicle is up on the stands or lifts. Lifts are handy when you want to work under the car.
