Pro tip: Only drill the holes in the inside tube 2" apart. On the female tube, drill two holes for the pins that are 3" apart. Now you have the ability to raise it in 1" increments depending on which pin hole you use.Couldn't find any decent screw-type jacks locally, so I decided to go ahead and make a pair of jack stands. 3" .188 wall outer tube with a 2.5" .120 wall inner tube drilled in 1" increments. 3/16" base plate with 1" square tube diagonals. 27" collapsed and 42" fully extended.

They're 90% complete as is, just have to pick up some 2" round tube so I can make the rotating cups for the top, and then add some locking tabs to the four pins. Maybe a bit overkill, but they'll be plenty tall enough to let me fully cycle the rear suspension.
