    Does anyone in the Sdale or East Valley area have a set of ramps that I could borrow for a little bit (a week or two)? My wife's Volvo (2003) has a leak in the radiator and the tranny fluid and coolant has mixed and had created a wonderful chocolate soup in each :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: and I need to flush everything, and either change the radiator or add a tranny cooler. Of course there's no place on the car that will actually support jackstands or even a floor jack for that matter! I'd pick up a set but I'd rather not spend $80 on something I'd never use again and don't want to store in my already packed garage.

    Thanks!

    There's got to be a crossmember somewhere between the firewall and the front bumper? Put the jackstands under the pinch weld at the rockers behind the front tires. Set the brake to chalk the rear tires.

    Yes there's a xmember but luckily it right where I need to access. Dude this car was not designed for "people" to work on...special this, no access to that
