I even had to jack the car up higher to install my LG long tubes. I'm still not done with that yet. But if you can use your buddies lift you can get it done in a weekend.

I installed my LG's on the same jackstands with a few blocks of wood.

You guys kill me with the way you put your car up in the air. They will clown you hard at the track using wood. Not safe. Put the jack on the rocker panel and lift one side up. Slowly lower the jack onto jackstands that are at the jacking points on your rocker panel. Then repeat on the other side.

a 2x4 is perfectly acceptable, it is no different that using a thicker jacking puck. I needed a few more inches of clearance so I put 1 2x4x4" between each jacking puck and its respective jack stand. I would have put 12x12" squares of plywood under the jackstands except I didnt have any

You see, THAT'S why I keep holding off on trying it that way. I don't know if I want to go that route if it's going to be a major paint in the ass. Let's see your pictures, especially getting the car up high enough.








This one shows the jack stands we used.

This is why I have decided to get this.



You can read about it here.

http://www.gregsmithequipment.com/At...ur-Post-Lift_2

The price of $2200 is not bad but add in the cost of changing my garage doors to roll up doors to give me the added space to lift will run an additional $1800 so we are about $4000 total. But I will be able to do what I want in my own garage and I won't have to buy a new house. So I save some money there. Right?

I will say that this really works well for the Vette but won't lift all the way up with a regular vehicle because of the clearance. But it would still lift a regular vehicle up off the ground about as high as a medium hight lift would allowing most work to still be done without using jack stands. And you can get the inner lifts and stands to do alot of other work as well.

I do like it.

I looked at that one too! But I guess I'm a big puss cause I was afraid it would drop the car on me. Not because of the lift but because i would probably install it wrong or my garages concrete would be too brittle or something.

You know...that old Murphys law thing...
