I gotta agree. those style jack stands are pure junk.
you need the square welded style with cast iron lifts.
I like the 6 ton models. they are wide enough to handle the face of the unibody frame without damage, and they fit well in the nooks and crannies of the car's structure. also the square frame is MUCH sturdier!
at a minimum, I would store the tires under the frame of the body to catch the car if something tips. even better is to put the tires under, then wedge some 2x6's into the space.
keep up the good work! and keep pics coming!
I don't see the damage on the axle, but what I do see is the boot and can damage on your axles from age and rust.
I'd certainly remove the boots, and wire brush all the rust off the cans and por-15 it! then reboot with new Flexx boots and some fresh gear oil in the cans!
