Hi Ralph -RalphP said:WOW: That is really slick! Is there any reason not to store a car on this lift and park another one under it? Or, is it better to get a 4-post lift for that purpose?
Thanks for the responses guys: What you say makes sense and I guess if there was any harm in storing the car with the suspension unloaded, you would have said so. I have always thought the 4- post lifts look awkward for working on cars and would much rather have the 2-post for that reason. I suppose you just need a little more clearance for the 2-post since the wheels will be lower in that case.wamara said:Ralph, the 4 post is quicker and simpler if your primary purpose is storage/stacking two cars. Obviously you can do work off of it but you have to fool with a bridge if you want to remove tires, and the design is also a bit more obstructive for more complex work. Conversely, the two post is better for maintenance but less convenient for storage. So you need to decide what your priorities are. Good luck.
I have 9'8". I will have to rework my garage door tracks to move them up and probably get rid of the conventional opener and install one of the ones that mounts on the side. My garage is 26' deep so after raising the door tracks (they won't extend as far into the garage any more) I may be able to move the lift completely ahead of the door tracks and use all 9'8". Otherwise, I assume I will lose about 8" and be at 9' height.3Pedal_Z06 said:I wish my garage was taller :mah: I might have to move - I want a lift.

:rofl: :cheers:You are going to love having a lift, if only for all the beer your Corvette Buddies bring by on the weekends in barter for "air-time" on the lift... :rofl: :guiness:
If you check with the manufacturer, they will tell you how thick they want the concrete to be( 3 to 4 inches in most cases). Other than that, they just bolt it to the floor.Z06-Dave said:On the twin post lifts are there any modifications needed to the floor where you bolt it in? Do you need additional concrete in those 2 areas?
