Rust
the other day i tried to find a spot where to put my car on stands, but there so much rust the metal just bends/crushes where ever i place the stands. Do you think using a piece of wood would help. Can anyone help me, i hate having to take my car to a garage for minor repairs because i cant jack up my car.

RE: Rust
Both the AMC Eagle and the Eagle Tallon are unibody so rust is an issue to the structrual integrity of the vehicle as a whole.

If you can't find a place to support it that's safe there's a good chance the vehicle is not safe for the road.

Never use wood or other DIY items to support a car that you will be working under. What's your life worth in comparison?

That said, if you must do this then try jacking / supporting only at suspension or cross-member points. They are much more sound than any unibody parts.

RE: Rust
Well, using wood is not a good option.
