car jack

Hi Gurus,

My client has designed a car jack using joint connections. A 400kg force is
applied on top of the jack. What is required is the reaction forces (along
x-axis) at the joints between the lower and upper arms of the jack. Using
Force Balance analysis of MDO, they got the reaction forces but these forces
were in a different direction.I tried using the options that are available
using the measure dialog box but couldn't find a solution. Any
solutions/tips regarding the procedure for finding the reaction forces at
different joints in the direction I want rather than what the software gives
would be very welcome.Or is there any other way in doing this??

TIA
