    Is there an alternate and safe jack point for the front instead of the pinch welding?

    I'm prepping for my first brake job and wanted to avoid effing up the underside of the car. I hated jacking up my B7 from the pinch weld and even placing the jack stand on that point. As soon as I let the weight down, it cut right through the paint and rubber like compound. Then it's exposed metal and hated looking it every time I went underneath.


    Any recommendation on a good set of ramps? I was thinking of this route but am kinda hesitant.; had an nissan sentra when I was a kid and almost tipped the ramps forward - never forget that.
    Does anyone remember the actual OE makers of the stock front pads for the B8? You may have seen it stamped on the old pads.
