I dont personally, but get yourself a trolley jack anyways :D

Much sturdier and I have a lot more confidence in them than the standard Ford one - they're really only for emergencies :)

i jack my car up no problems with my mates trolley jack, and i've got 12-bore sideskirts (which are pretty low) on 16's. Might have some problems when its lowered, we'll wait and see.
I think he got it from Argos (don't laugh) and theres an RAC trolley jack with 2 axle stands for ?30! We've been using them loads recently and no problemo's atall yet.
Hope this helps

Yes, ive got RS2000 sideskirts and also have problems jacking the car, thats cause they dont fit flush to the underside of the car and weather you use the ford jack or a trolley jack you'll crack the skirt, have to keep taking them off ! :(

Yer just 3 bolts running down the side of the skirt, takes about 5 mins to remove, until i fix them on properly on so that it can be jacked without removing them, dont need to jack the car up often so not too much of a problem

yeah jack your car up from front or back, can do this when changing a wheel aswell

if your working on it you should jack it onto stands so will be able to do that from front or back

generally use the rear chassis rails on the back.

the gearbox cradle on the front or the lower arm to chassis leg points on the fronts

right best way is to lock but i'll tell you where look under the back from the back bumper and you'll see to supporting rails, box like sections those on the rear and on the front if you look at the towing eye and go directyly back that where the gearbox cradle is and the lower arm to chassis rails you'll be able to see the lower arm joins the bottom of the suspension setup and the the car the car/arm join is whwere you can jack
