where can i buy a low profile jack?

Hi guys, i was wondering where you can get a low profile jack in victoria, other than canadian tire. Hoping to not spend to much. I currently have a michelin aluminum low pro jack from canadian tire which crapped out on me. Shitty thing is i only had it for like 2yrs and used it less than 15 times.

suggestions would be great.
thanks

Me too. I've got 2 floor jacks (both leaky from Canadian Tire) and my car's too low to get them under.

I've had one of the cheapos aluminum low-profile jacks from Princess Auto for several years... it's taken a beating and still works.... I think Walmart caries the same jack with different branding.

You can kinda see it in this pic of my messy ass garage...

You can get a mad discount at JB too if you have access to use the right accounts.
