            No offense OP but hell no! Death comes to us all but for me it ain't coming by way of that...... There is nothing about that design that I like....

                So... I replaced my front struts on my Caliber last weekend. I pulled up on Rhino ramps, put a floor Jack under and jacked up off the ramps. Then chocked the back tires and Jack stands under the frame. I had a tire off in about 2 minutes.

                The good news is I'm sure harbor freight or whoever sells this hunka shit will honor the warranty for your widow.

                          Pretty scary looking if you ask me. I don't care how much or how little they cost.

                              I might trust it if the pads were longer front to back.....and with a LIGHT car. But then, that brings on new problems like the frame needing to be longer front to back. I wouldn't have a good feeling about it. You live everyday. You only die once.

                              I'd like it more if it didn't pivot. If it stayed solid and didn't teter, it may be a decent option for a quick brake job and such.

                                      It would be good to have the option to lock it in place. I wonder if it does? I didn't see that it did. Kinda worries me they may not want it pickin a whole car up at once.
