      I'm going to go buy 2 more stands and jack it up from the rear and hopefully it will allow enough clarence for the jack.

      if you drive it up on a 2 x 12, will that not give you enough clearance? An 8ft 2 x 12 at HD will probably only cost $3-5, plus maybe 25 cents/cut to have them cut it into four 2ft pieces. that'll give you an additional 1.75inch clearance from the floor. just a thought.

      Those are 2x8x4's and I would normally just add another piece to make it 4" high, but the motor is ripped apart so I can't move it . oh the situations I get myself into haha.

      I've always wanted to buy these, but instead I've destroyed my underbody :bang head:

      But since you haven't destroyed your pinch welds yet maybe this:

      Hmm I like the hockey puck idea. I may need to do that if my current plan fails.

      So small update. I tried to jack the car up by placing it on the tow hook area (where I normally do) and realized that the low pro jack won't lift high enough to get the jack stands under. Guess its time to try the hockey puck

      I made these lifesavers back when I had the slammed mk3...


      They work like a charm. The two step up makes it easy to use and lets you clear the lowest fronts. The top is just over 3.5 inches and the stopers are commonly used

      Not low enough
      Look at the picture of my car with my hand in front of my bumper. The reflection in the paint you can see the lip going into my garage. The driveway is sinking because of the stupid clay/limestone in Berks county. There is now a 2 1/2" lip

      You should just fab up some perm wooden rams for your garage

      Nice! Mine still has them They work great, especially in the front, but in the rear, theres no good place to put the stands after...

      I love coming home to find that the UPS man had left me a present while I was at work.


      Great news! The puck with the cut out for the pinch weld worked flawlessly! Thanks for the link Doug!


      Now for some sad shots
      DS inner boot that exploded

      And my oil pan which I have started to rub through. Thats right, rub. Not smash. If your low, then learn how to drive low!
