My 08 Toyota Yaris is a very small car. Keep in mind Toyota specifically designed and marketed this to young females (I kid you not), and they must have assumed young females never work on cars so it's not garage-dad friendly to work on. Case in point:
It only has one lift point in front and rear, and only one jack stand placement in each corner. The rear lift point is located 4" in from the rear bumper, so I have to jack it up REALLY high in the air to get tires off ground. The front lift is in between front tires so don't have to lift as much to get tires off ground.
I need to work on rear brakes, so I need to use jack stands. Rear jackstand points are in about 4" in front of each rear tire, in the space between front and rear tires.
My problem is that to jack up the rear high enough for my 3-ton jack stands to fit under their designated spots, the rear end has to go up about 2.5-ish feet, and the tires are about 6" off the ground. Then the car is at a crazy high angle with it's butt way up in the air and isn't safe at all to work on.
I need jacks that are only about 6-9 inches high, enough to get tires off ground but not crazy dangerous high like it would be. I've researched a lot about this and most results are about raising jacks and jack stands up higher, or low profile jacks to fit under car; neither are my problem.
Ideas? Thanks ahead of time.
