That stinks. Is it just the pad that is damaged or the jack itself?

Pad repair

No, just the pad. I believe it is held in place by large allen bolt up under the center of the pad?

Can you post a photo of the damage? That might get you some suggestions on repair or replace.
I'm modifying my headlights when parts arrive in a couple days. I'll crawl under and take a close look at the jacks for clues then.

What kind of fix do you have for headlights?

Don't want to hijack this thread. If successful I'll post over on the headlight thread. If successful. 😃

Yes. I bent one last summer really bad, totally my fault by setting it down over a hole and putting way too much pressure on it. The single hex bolt on the bottom can be removed with an impact wrench. There is no way to hold the shaft of the hydraulic ram. Comes off really easy that way.

Just to be sure, I called Equalizer to ask if there was any issue with the ram shaft turning some while removing the foot. Person I spoke to was very helpful and told me the impact was the only way to go, and a little shaft rotation was OK. I bought a spare foot, but was able to straighten and then strengthen the one I had and reinstall. Don't remember how much the foot was, but I did not find it bad at the time.

Hope that helps.
