Race Ramps
 
Looking at getting a set of these http://jreperformanceparts.com/race-...race-ramp.html but I'm not quite sure these will get my car high enough to get under it to change the oil since it's lowered with Pfadt. Anyone have these or another kind?

I think its not going to be high enough you may have 12 to 15 inch of total clearance. If you like me it a tight squeeze with a creeper or without. I would look for a ramp at least 12inches or higher.

Race ramps can make custom ramps if you want. Check out this page. http://www.raceramps.com/vehicle-lift-ramps.aspx

I have these and they work great for changing oil. Is a bit tight, but manigible. I am 5'11 and about 200lbs.

Spend the extra bucks and get the 67" ramps!!

That`s what I have and it works real fine,

Get the 67 in 2 piece. I use them along with roll ups for most work. Did headers, supercharger and oil changes no problem on these and they store nicely.

Dang. If you are afraid these wont give you enough room you must either be a big guy or the car is slammed to the ground.

I have the next size up (67" two piece) and I can sit up underneath my car and I'm 6' tall.

I have the 56" two-piece and they worked fine for oil changes, axle-back exhaust install and skip shift harness.

No not a big guy, 5'9" 180lbs but just looking at the measurements it looks as if the ramp is 8" high and i think my bumper is about 8" high so I figured that would only give me 16". Just don't want to buy the 56", pay to ship to Hawaii and then not be able to get under them.

Mr_Draco 11-26-2012 05:45 PM

The 56" ramps raise the wheels of the car 10" off the ground. Since your car is lowered, measure the height of the engine, I wouldn't measure the front bumper since it is typically higher. Either way, unless your car is really low, you will be fine.

james347 11-26-2012 06:11 PM

Race ramps are nice, but they do seem to compress a bit under the weight of the car.

Lgndryhr 11-26-2012 07:28 PM

I built my own using wood. I can fit under them just fine and they store easy. They are a little heavy, but worth it.

bannonm 11-26-2012 08:28 PM

Go to Race Ramps website. They have a calculator that you can use to find out the size ramps you'll need. You take measurements from your car and enter them into the calc and it tells you which ramps will work. I have to go with the largest/longest ramp they make to get my car up on the trailer. I'm lowered and have a splitter than really makes it difficult.

midnightz/28 11-26-2012 10:49 PM

So is fat 12" from the bottom of the tire? It sounds life enlightenmenth room to me.

Moni 11-27-2012 07:01 PM

I have the 67" and it is just barely enough space. My car is stock height with the sinister kit. They are worth every dime!

midnightz/28 11-27-2012 07:13 PM

I am going.to get some race ramps too

ssummit camaro 11-27-2012 10:18 PM

so which size would I need to clear a 1le camaro not lowered?

I am thinking of getting a set of Race Ramps to raise the car up to make it easier to detail. Are there any vendors here that give Camaro5 a special price. I have looked on Amazon and I see you can get the RR-56 for $203.00 with free shipping. Does anyone have a better price?

Check JW motoring. They used to and may still have specials on race ramps. I love mine. They are safer, well constructed, light, and make life muchhhhh easier. Also, look into buying some wheel cribs by race ramps. I love them.

Adamspolishes.com sells them and they are having a 15% discount right now, and normally have a Camaro5 discount.

The ramps are formed from a solid one piece unit made from a high density poly styrene and are then absolutely encased in a thick and robust non skid surface. Each ramp is ranked to contain 1200lbs.

SIN R G 04-24-2013 08:16 PM

I ordered a set of Race Ramps RR-56-2 on Sunday from Amazon. I took the free shipping which said 8-12 business days, so I was not expecting them till middle of next week. Went and got groceries this morning, got home and carried in the first few bags and put some of the stuff away. Went to get the rest of the groceries and there was a box inside my garage right in front of my steps. UPS had been there and delivered my Race Ramps.

I opened the box right away, they looked really nice and I am really surprised at how light they are. I did not need them to get under the car to do any work. I am disabled and I have a really hard time reaching the last 2 inches of the side of the car to clean it. I put the Camaro up on the ramps right away. WOW, I was able to see and reach some of the areas I could not see or reach before. I am now in the process of doing the clay bar, then polishing and waxing using an orbital buffer. Damn, this thing is going to shine even more than it did last year.

So, I have only had my Race Ramps for 6 hours now and I totally Love them already.

ZED SLED 04-25-2013 10:32 AM

Has anyone tried either the 56" or 67" with a ZL1? Concerned about splitter clearance.
