Hello All; I can't jack the back of my car up, using the normal jack point, if I need to change a tire because the rust in that area is so bad; does anyone know if there is a repair out there specifically for this issue?

There is not, other than cutting out the old metal, and welding in new metal. Can be very expensive.

In the mean time, you can slide the jack under the axle beam and jack the truck up that way.

Thanks for that; my Tek actually failed its' annual inspection last week because of this (and a small brake line issue); my mechanic has a friend who can do the work, so waiting for him to come back off vacation, and get an estimate.
