Don't do it!!!

Justin, never use the OEM emergency jack to lift more than one corner of the car, such as when changing a flat. That jack is not designed to lift the entire weight of the front end. It will fail with possible dire consequences. Use the floor jack, but make sure you get one that will fit under the car w/o hitting anything. You can safely jack at the front crossmember under the engine.

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.
