This guide will show you how to lift your VF Commodore using a trolley jack and jack stands. This guide is provided as advice only based on our experiences. This process has not been certified by the manufacturer and may cause damage to your vehicle if performed. A hoist is only the proper way to correctly and safely raise a vehicle.
- Trolley Jack
- Jack Stands (x2)
These tools must be in good working condition, rated for the weight of your vehicle and certified to Australian standards. Quality Trolley Jacks and Jack Stands are crucial for your safety.

Before you begin, find a suitable surface. Your lifting surface should be flat and solid. Concrete is ideal. Place wheel chocks behind the opposite set of wheels to ensure the car does not roll.
Jack stands are mandatory when lifting the vehicle as they are your protection from being injured or killed in the event of a trolley jack failing.
The stands can be placed under the factory scissor jack lifting points located under the side skirt of the vehicle. These are the same points used when changing your spare wheel.
Once the desired height is reached, place both jack stands in the appropriate locations and lower the vehicle onto the stands.
