I have used cinder blocks to raise the height of a jackstand.. of course, just working on front drum brakes, never being under the car with it... thing to remember is, a set of stands used improperly can be just as bad, or worse than blocks.. all it takes is 1 of them to shift the slightest bit and they can all come down on you.. they can also sink in unsturdy ground or tilt in unsturdy ground and give way.. really the best way would be 4 sturdy drive on ramps if the car has to be sitting on the tires
