something to keep in the car, i sent away for a spare tire and rim, now i need a jack kit, for the car, any ideas//
There are a lot of options. Go to a Pick-your-part and get one for a couple of bucks. My personal favorite is a Porsche 944. All aluminum and has the slot for the pinch weld. You can go on Ebay and buy one for $10-15, swapmeet, yard sale etc. I have 3 or three floating in the depths of my garage.
I bought a scissors jack at Harbor Freight Tools for $15 that looks like the one in the link posted earlier. I then bought a extra 1/2 inch breaker bar and a socket on ebay. Both of those together were less than $30 with shipping. The breaker bar and socket fit with the jack in the box in which the jack came.
