Just normal jack stands. No coding, I cleared the codes with my BT tool, and reset all the adaptions on the DSC module. I think the steering sensor something or other is under the DSC module, I reset that one too, because this little bastard motor fucks with your adaptive headlights. If you notice at night, at least with my XI, when I had my lights on adaptive, they would go all the way to the right and sometimes center and then go back to the right and stay there. Before I replaced the servo, I just manually turned them on, which doesn't utilize the adaptive feature. This was fixed after I replaced the motor.

BTW, I got the motor and transfer case fluid from Tischer. It totaled in around at $530. The motor comes complete with new bolts and the o-ring.
