I just found out that my hydraulic bottle jack is bad. Instead of replacing it in kind, I found a manual bottle jack like I used on the farm. It has a long crank handle that I can use to position it, crank, and retrieve the jack without crawing on my knees. That jack is lighter, will always work, and is actually quicker to raise an axle up. Why didn't I think of that before!! Best part is it cost $0 as I had it laying around the shop!
