I've convinced the old man to convince the older man. To get a lift so I can work on all the various company cars more efficiently. and I can of course use this to my advantage on my own car. I'm planning on doing a little suspension work (koni yellows and steeda sports and maybe lower control arms) rotating the tires and repainting the calipers.
And I should probably do some trans fluid cleaning while I'm at it.
I know you can do most of this on the ground but it is soooo much easier at chest level.
So if you had a lift what would you do yourself that you normally wouldn't or couldn't. I want to get as much use out of this thing as possible.

Someone was talking to me about some sort of undercarriage coating that you can do but after looking it up, it's not nessecary but I live near Chicago and the roads get pretty salty in the winter. I wouldn't pay a shop but if that's something I can buy in a can and do myself...
I'm pricing lifts right now. After doing two clutch swaps and a full suspension swap on jackstands, I'm done with that crap.
I got mine for 2.9k installed and delivered. installer's coming in Monday and the lift should arrive tomorrow.
We've got 4 company cars (3 town and countries and a ram 1/4 ton) the moms navigator which eats suspension parts. My car of course and the big mans cars. all of which I maintain. ie motor oil brakes trans service tire rotations and whatever else happens to be bad. 7 cars every 4-5 months with oil and twice a year with brakes... I ain't doing it on my back anymore.
