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.

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.

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.

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

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.
