I know there is a lot of info on these but they are as far back as 2007 and a lot of the links are outdated

anybody have a current link for the pucks for the sky? I like the plastic or rather rubber ones if possible. I would like to get 4 for when it's on a lift.

Also what is recommended leaving them in or just carrying them with me in my spacous truck?

thanks in advance

I bought 4 polished aluminum last month from GQ Industries LLC through Ebay. Only $49. I took the car in for service last week and the mechanic said the jacking pucks worked fine. :thumbs:

real hockey pucks? I thought the pucks for lifting the car had to have some form of stem to hold them in place?

Yup. Real hockey pucks. You just put them on top of the lift pad, and store them in small box in the trunk (or a little bag) after use. For more information on the subject, you may want to take a look at the following thread.

I just surprised that the $18K car I just bought needs a hockey puck and a toggle bolt for me to jack it up......

Many cars like the Solstice and Sky benefit greatly from special attention and handling when lifting. As evidenced by the number of broken and bent fenders.

The company selling you the car does not include lifting pucks but if you chose to have the car lifted without them then you are proceeding at considerable risk of damage.

I hate to break this to you, but your car didn't come with a jack either so you'll need one of those also :lol:

Of course, once you get the proper jack and figure out how to use it in the proper way, what are you going to do? You don't have a proper spare tire, heck, you don't have ANY spare tire! :eek::confused:

Your in good company. The Vette, porsche, BMW all require something like this to protect their bodies. The pucks I bought are specifically for the SKY. No drilling, cutting, toggle bolts, etc. required. :cheers:

I was just having a little fun, but what I said about using the proper tool in the proper way applies. Personally, I use a block of wood between the jack and the lifting point in order to clear the fender, it's worked as well as the hockey puck, or the lifting pucks sold by many places on the internet.

If you have a lift, check the drawing in #1 and the placement in #3.
