Transmission Jack Under Car LiftTypically, when removing a transmission, differential, or gear box from a vehicle, it begins with the automobile or truck elevated on a two-post or four-post lift. Transmission jacks are then positioned centrally beneath the vehicles transmission and raised slightly until the transmission jack lifting platform comes in contact with the flat surface of the transmission. After determining the transmission jack is centrally positioned and properly stable, it is then raised further to elevate the entire weight of the transmission so that it can be safely removed from the engine block. Once elevated, the hydraulic transmission jack can be raised further to allow adequate removal clearance. Prior to removal, it is important to secure the transmission to the lifting platform via straps or chains that are typically included with each transmission jack.

Another possibility is their lifting capacities and cradles may be better suited to accommodate different kinds of vehicles or applications.
