    Just a quick reminder to anyone considering using a floor jack to lift a unibody car — Be sure to get a unibody adapter to safely lift the car without causing damage, like bending the body or poking holes in it. I got mine from Eastwood, primarily because it was the only aftermarket one that I could find short of having to machine it myself.

    What the heck is the difference between a unibody and a non-unibody car?

    Examples?

  3. CatMoran says:

    Basically, either the car’s parts are attached to an underlying frame, or they’re just attached to each other.

    Most, if not all, cars are unibody. Pickups have frames. I don’t know about SUVs and minivans.

    Damn near everything made today is a unibody car, that is, the car’s sheet metal body is what holds it all together. The chasis & body are one — A unibody.

    Back in the gashog days most all vehicles were manufactured with a seperate frame, a load bearing structure to which all the other parts of the car were attached. The frame acted as a skeleton on which the suspension, drive train and body were carried.

    Is is worth the risk to order from Overstock anymore? Haven’t there been enough horror stories to warrant their exclusion from any “deal” roundups? The best way for shoppers to bite back is to not buy.
