Default Lift

I really want to lift my stang like 8" to clear my 34" dubs...J/K...I am looking for some good leads & experience with lifts...I "need" one in my garage and am starting my homework process...I have Gemeni here in Texas, but after the corvette incident I am leary...I have heard good things from Rotory, but $$$...This will be a one time purchase (obviously) so I need to make it right...Anyone?

edit...should have been mo pacific...I am looking for a garage lift, two post, four post (most likely), ect as you would see at Ford...Ya'll know what I'm talking about...

Check around for a garage that is closed or closing. I found one for a friend, $1000 out the door and I installed it after tracking down the instructions on line. Had to rebuild one cylinder....$75.00. Works great and was a half day to install. Also, many dealers will just put old ones out back after upgrading to new stuff. Look around and save.

Because I'm curious, what was the "Corvette incident" and do you have a link?

Bendpak is another name.

ESPECIALLY IF YOU CHOOSE A TWO POST LIFT - - - THE CONDITION OF YOUR FLOOR AND THE CONCRETE STRENGTH & DEPTH ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. One reason being that an off-center load can pry up on some of the anchor bolts, and the failure mode is apt to give little or no warning. The specific lift mfr should have the concrete requirements readily available, and I'd urge that you make sure that your floor is comfortably thicker/stronger than the minimums. Note that your local building inspector may have requirements more stringent than the mfr, so make sure that you get their approval.

google perfect park lift from Gemini lifts in tx...Don't want this headache...I looked into the two post one, which can be had from almost anywhere, even costco, but for parking/storage the drive-on lifts are preferred due to 'drooping suspension'...

AZPete...Great Idea...Will do this, thanks...Also, Bendpak is leading my race right now...Also looking at Rotory

I'm pretty sure Hagarty covered his classic vette, and the lift manufactor's insurance covered his newer vette and house damage, ect...It took somethink like 1.2 years for him to collect and get everythiong back to normal...This was from 2002-2003, but I don't even want a part of that nightmare

I have an All American lift. Unfortunately, the recession got to them and they closed up shop. However, you can sometimes find them used on Ebay or Craigslist. They are a top quality product.
