If you cant get parts for it....or you can but they may cost almost "as much as the jack" ?? I recommend this jack, and you even get professional quality jackstands for FREE ! [on sale now] - I have one and LOVE IT.
Craftsman 3 ton Hydraulic Jack - #50143 With this heavy duty hydraulic floor jack, an SUV can be raised to a maximum height of 21 in. For extra safety and convenience there are big flanges on side plates.
You get these 2 jack stands for free
See more specs on em here Craftsman 3 ton High Lift Jack Stands #50159
[color:"blue"] Beware it does weigh 54.0 lbs
But its worth for this reason to me:
its got a "speedy-lift" design which means it lifts the saddle to your vehicles chassis in only TWO strokes. I like its extra high lift too , 6-21 inches the matching jackstands reach 21 inches too so they work nice together. ie its tall enough to work under your car EASILY even on your side. - fyi >>from the current sales flyer [ last weeks newspaper]
[color:"blue"] I got it on sale like it is CURRENTLY NOW !> 11/30 - 12/12/2003
[/color] ...more than a year ago after having same problem as you. Its $49.99 regularly but NOW it comes with the two jack stands for free. And if your a Craftsman Tool Club Member you get 10% on special tool sales like now. So its $44.99.
Sears has applications at their stores , so they say.See here Craftsman Club Corner
I would call the store if your interested, ask if you can get the 10 % discount immediately [if you fill out application to join Craftsman Club], get a RAINCHECK if they are out of the jacks [ so if you must wait for your Craftsman Club card in mail]...if you can wait that long.
Otherwise,if you need JACK NOW :: you can still get the jack and the 2 free jack stands for $49.99 ANYWAY, but if you can get discount instantly, or they make you wait for card you will get it all for $44.99.

See my other post for tire blow out story...this is the jack that got my tire changed FAST.I WILL never use those tiny car jacks[including Mustang Scissor jack ::] for any car EVER...too damn slow and dangerous.
I wanted to add too, my car sat on these jack stands last year for a good 3-5 months under a carport [ damp rainy Houston Fall/Winter etc ] they still looked as good as new even after getting wet in rain etc.They have a very strong finish ! I like those lime green ones on that page above too...they are even taller ! Gotta get those sometime ::
Lol I better shut up now or you all will think I work at Sears [I dont ::]
