    The part that sticks out the top of the puck should be oblong, no? They are on my RL pucks.

      My RL pucks were ordered a week ago. They confirmed they will fit the C8.

          Yes it is; Verified again yesterday and checked also underside of GS (which is difficult to do without a lift). Thanks again.

            A couple more interesting finds when jacking the car up at home for the first time. Last night, I was going to take the wheels off to ceramic coat them. First, the lug size is 7/8, not the size of my C7 GS. Second, if you jack the car up while the doors are locked, the motion/tilt sensor goes off and the horn and lights beep and flash. That will wake you up (and everyone else in the house)! The other thing different on the C8 is that the lug torque specs are now 140 ft lbs, which is different from the C7 as well.

              C7 was the same.

              Geez! I think my big torque wrench goes to 150, but I'm going to have to check to make sure.

                There's a button next to the OnStar controls which temporarily disables that part of the alarm system. I think it's primarily intended for use if you have to flat-bed the car somewhere for repair.

                  Just an FYI, DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT LIFT ON THE TRANSMISSION PAN AREA, WOOD BLOCK OR NOT, you will crush the solenoids in the dct, and itll get expensive real quick, fluid from gm is 45 bucks a quart.

                    I use the flat plastic 1/2 inch thick clip-on's and just leave them on. Ones like those are too thick to use with a floor jack.

                      I have two harbor freight floor jacks and both fit under these pucks without any problem at all. Also used a QuickJack with them, also no problem.

                        Low rise floor jacks work really well even with the extra thick Reverse Logic pucks. I got tired of wrestling around my old steel floor jacks and went with aluminum ones (what a joy).

                        Thanks meyerweb for the news about the Quick Jacks working with a regular set of skirts/rockers, and I am sure they would work well with the large aero rocker adds ones.

                          That's on my C7, of course, but the clearance on the C8 seems to be about the same.

                            7/8? The lugs are metric, 22mm.

                              7/8 = 22.2 mm. Pretty close. Many metric sizes have very close US std equivalents. A 3/4 inch socket is 19.05 mm, and works fine on 19mm lug nuts.
