It sounds like you might have some cool projects in the works! How many jack stands you’ll need depends on the kind of work you’ll be doing.
Generally speaking, if you’re only lifting one end of your car, you’ll need two jack stands. If you’re lifting the whole car, you’ll need four.
Before getting your car on jack stands, make sure you have a working understanding of best safety practices and the best lift points for your particular vehicle. You can find where to place the jacks in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
