    I have 4 that are going back. Compared to another set I have that are the same, the teeth aren't cut as deeply into the arms.

    I installed my entire new k-member and front suspension under those jack stands. Scary. And when I was done gave a set to my nephew.

    Turns out none of my 8 sets were from HF, but now understanding the risk, I replaced them all with double locking Strongways ( added pin) from Northern Tool. On sale for $20/pr it seems like insurance.

    We took ours back and they gave us a store credit, and they screwed with us on the price.
    oh well better safe than sorry.
    We used those stands for the whole rebuild too.

    @mcb82gt Yes those Northern Tool ones are the ones I was referencing.
