I used the jacks to lift my 1965 Comet to do some undercar cleaning, and I can see some of the limitations mentioned. The unibody isnít symmetrical front to rear, insofar as the best lifting points arenít in line with each other, so itís hard to set the jacks parallel and pick up the points you want. I got pretty close and lifted it off the ground without incident. Access to front and rear sections including suspension is great, middle undercarriage and components less so. My Galaxie has big frame rails running parallel to the rocker, so it should be better, X frame cars are probably a challenge.
