How do you get it up?

Post by J240sxxx on Sat Jan 16, 2010 4:55 pm

YOU PERV..

Anyways My question is how do you guys with lowered cars get them up. Do you use scissor jacks to lift the body and jack up the diff? Do you remove body kit parts to clear? Special ramps? low profile floor jacks? Any special technique? Im new to having a lowered car and I would like to know how you guys do it?

A friend of mine told me about some kind of bottle jack system you have installed on your car and you hook it up to an air compressor to get it off the ground, Is there really something like this? sounds kinda far fetched..

i drive my car onto a piece of wood (2x4 i think), once im on the first one, i place another one on top of it and roll it onto the second one. That allows the jack to roll under.

There is, but I've only seen them on F1 cars.

I use a low profile aluminum jack. costs a pretty penny, but it's nice.

No you don't. I've never seen the ksport jacks used but I've seen others without a cage
