I have a low profile 2.5 ton with jack pads from skylane. Four 2.5 ton jack stands and I put them in the same place as pictured. Get the lowest stands you can find though, and dont freak when the whole side of the car comes up.

It's pretty good for the price. There are some really high dollar ones out there.

And it's for the home/garage. Way to big to carry in the car. Had to bring it home in my TBSS.

I just bought two 2.25 ton jack stands with a fully lowered height of 10 5/8"

Tomorrow I will try and find a decent 3 ton jack.

I have this same floor jack. My car is lowered an inch and this still fits under the car. Only used it a handfull of times, but never a problem.

I use 3 ton torin jack, 3 ton jackstands as an intermediate step to 12 ton jackstands. It makes it a whole lot nicer to do things underneath when the car is 30" in the air.

Cool, I'm lowered too and this answered most everything. Looks like you also have GFX. I usually lift the entire front end. Any issues getting the handle to pump doing that? With my current jack, I have to be on ramps.
