Ramp recommendations?
« on: October 08, 2007, 08:22:06 PM »
I need some ramps so I can do simple maintenance on my car. Since it is low I am worried that any old ramp will just result in me pushing them around with my front end. So I need something that is kind of extended.

Other than needing to recover from my awful Winter the only thing keeping me from doing some of my own work is my inability to fit anything under the car real well.

pick up a set of rhino ramps at sears.  they are good, they are cheap.

I also have Rhino Ramps, possibly truck ramps?  Heavy gray plastic.  Got 'em at Wal Mart.  Three years or so, no problems.

You can use any ramp if you jack your car up and put them under it.  A bit of a pain, yes, but I don't think I have ever seen any ramps that will fit under a low down euro.
