    RE: Whats with work stands?

    For one, you can fire it up while on the bench for tuning and adjustments... I use a 6" x 6" pice of redwood.

    RE: Whats with work stands?

    I find it's easier to work on wheels/ setting my camber adjustments, checking my servo operations etc. It's a handy and important piece of equipment for my trucks.

    RE: Whats with work stands?

    It also helps for cleaning and maintenance work. For example, if you want to change the shift point in your transmission, at some point you will have to spin two of the wheels in order for you to see where the set screw is in the transmission to adjust the shift point. This is almost impossible to do without a stand, because all four wheels will start spinning when you spin two of them (because the truck is 4WD), and so you would have to hold it in your hand or something.

    Here is a couple of pics of the stand I just built. Like Spikex sais, its great for tranny adjustments, lets the suspension hang so you can check movement, It's pretty handy.

    All of the above, but make the 8.5" piece 9" instead. It will fit against the control arms better.

    RE: Whats with work stands?

    I used a old saw horse for the longest time, It was at just the rite height and I coulld fit more then one ride on it. I always use a stand for cleaning, working on, and making all kinds of adjustments. Got this stand last christmas......It only holds the savvy though.
