quick question

i need to put my new coils in but i dont have access to a floorjack. and with my wheels so off camber i dont intend to drive my truck anywhere until its fixed.

will the jack ford supplies to change your tires have enough strength to lift my truck high enough to put a jackstand under it to allow me to drop my beams to install the new coils?

I have had to do it a couple of times out on the trail. I jack up the rear end, and push it over out of the ruts. That jack is plenty strong enough

all my friends that have floorjacks dont have cars/licenses lol and mine is basically undriveable. the way im gonna do it is put the jack under the shock like i would change a tire and when its high enough just put a jackstand under my frame and then lower the jack and do the work
