4-post lift

decent info out there but how much does installation cost in vancouver?

how was the install in a standard 2-car garage? any modification? ceiling clearance?

what's it like living with it? are the spouse/kids ok with parking next to it and getting out fine?

anything you would do different or wish you knew before you got into it?

Not sure if this is allowed, but I just started working at KMS Tools in Coquitlam and was just about to inquire about this myself. Maybe give them a call, they have a bunch of options.

Is it to work on your vehicle and storage?
Or just to work on your car?
If it's just to work on your car maybe look into quick jacks.

4 posts assemble easy and although I would never not bolt it to the floor its a good idea to bolt to the floor with concrete anchors. Unlike a 2 post lift, there isn't a minimum concrete thickness requirement, you can put it anywhere you have the space. If you are doing auto repairs, be warned the rolling jacks cost a fortune. A quality rolling jack will be more than an offshore 4 post lift. That being said, I really don't like the massive footprint a 4 post requires, it's only really good for parking, doing wheel alignments, or if you have an above ground dyno at home, lol.

This is the exact video you're looking for. This guy has a e36 m3, wrx, and 944 with a 4 post in his 2 car garage. He talks about some pros and cons. You can see in some of his newer videos that it seems like a pita to work on his car. Producer pretty much summed it up for ya

yes i know bridge jacks cost an arm and a leg

i only really remove wheels for rotating and brake work, probably gonna stick with scissor/bottle jacks
