NOT a good deal.

So I'm sure a bunch of you, like me, had some of these recalled stands. I used them for a buggy that I no longer have. Mine were stolen, so I never brought them back. Anyway, looking for a set for my car now.

If you brought them back, did you get credit or did they give you the new jack stands? I was going to look at the new ones, but my local store said the new ones they got were the same as the recalled ones. I was told the new ones were coming soon.

Anybody have experience with the recall? Or the quality of the new jack stands if they were available elsewhere? Either the aluminum "racing" or the "heavy duty"? I think the new ones are both 3 ton, but not sure. I know the $50 aluminum stands are 3 ton.

I’m curious too. The letter I got said they’ll refund the purchase price. Now if I can remember to put the stands in the truck so I’ll have them...

I took mine back a few months back when I got the letter thinking I could get the new ones, well I am still waiting for the "new" ones to get released.

They gave me a GC for the amount I paid for the jacks plus tax.

So there's no replacement? I just haven't been using mine. Anyone "seen" them fail or seen a video or something?

Did the clutch in my truck with these stands holding it up. Safe to say they worked fine. Dad returned them, don't remember if it was store credit or not.

I tested mine yesterday, and they didn't do the falling thing, but I'm returning them anyway. Also I smashed my finger doing it, so I'm extra mad. ;) LOL
