Back side should be no problem. I use ramps to get the front end up in the air.

it should work even with the springs. I have one and it is tight, but will fit.
Worst case you'll just need a coule of 2x12 boards to drive the front up on so the jack slides under like we do for lowered vettes

I have the Tirerack low profile jack and it works great, but I still want a set of ramps to go with it.

Was just ready to buy a low profile jack. Thought too much into it, 2x12's such a money saver. Great idea! Too much tought sometimes is a bad thing.

You might want to go larger than a 2 T jack though.

I wouldn't go less than a 3 ton jack.

Also, I usually drive up on four blocks of 2 X 12's cut 12 inches long (one under each wheel) which raises the car 1.5 inches.
