Iíve used similar product from Race Ramps before at a buddies place. They are great! Especially the pullout section allows side access. Ideally a lift would be what I want but looking at either race ramps or a quickjack.

Yeah tough call on what to get. My homemade ramps work okay for now along with jack and jack stands. But want something better. One day.

You can get a good 2 post for that much money. Only way I would ever get those is if they were my only choice

A 2 post lift for $1-2k?

And I donít have a garage/shop with the correct floor or tall enough to support a lift currently.

I remember some discussion about the quick jack a year or so ago. People seemed to like them. I think they said there was a specific model to get for the Camaro and it required some extensions, I believe. I could probably use some. The race ramps look pretty good also.

Before I buy those race ramps I go with the Twin busch. This is the right tool everything eles is just a compromise. Maybe a used one. Or one from SEMA? And for

1x oil change per year (for that I go to a rental DIY garage)

1x wheels off and on per year


I stick to my Wheel hub stands.

I still think those wheel hub stands are awesome!

And thanks for the link. Didnít know could get lifts that inexpensive. Still I need a garage capable of using them. But that gives me some food for thought.

Yeah, I'm looking at those lifts and thinking I need to buy a new house to deal with my vehicle addiction.

Folks... I might have a problem. Is there a support group for this?

7 motorcycles, the fifty, a 4Runner, and a Jeep. I need help.

Interesting. But I do live in Memphis (one of the worst cities in the USA for crime) and I donít want them stolen/messed up being outside. When I move and build a shop one day.

Update on the suspension components.

So I had a chance to take her out by myself and push her a little on my "test road".

Talk about a confidence builder. I beat my top G Force of .86 with a new high of .94. Got that by applying more throttle out of one of the turns. No tire squealing whatsoever.

The rear is so planted that I can really feel the rubber mounted cradle bushings. I'm afraid to replace them due to the ride being too harsh.

It's getting on the stiff side, but not bad enough to regret the upgrades. It's a Camaro, to perform it has to be a little stiff.

Very nice. Glad to hear it keeps the rear planted. Adds more stuff to the wishlist. Thanks Heath! Lol.
