I don't know jack
The brake pads are here, but I'm still thinking about how I want to go about the jacking. I liked the jack adapter that went into the hollow axle, but it appeared to require a hole in the axle nut, something I can't do because my wheel pants have a bolt that goes into the end of the axle nut. I'm not positive about the requirement for the hole in the axle nut, but the only other way I can see it working would be to take the axle nut off with the weight of the plane still on the wheel. That doesn't seem right, so... whatever. I'm going to Lowes to pick up a 4x4 and a 2x4 and just whip together something to either act as a jack stand, or a brace for the jack itself in case it lets go.
