    Lifting / Jacking-up Lowered Cars

    Just wondering how you guys lift / jack-up your lowered cars?

    I have an A4 avant that I lowered on coilovers a few months back.
    To jack it up and get it on axle stands I use the "widowmaker" jack to lift enough to get my proper jack under.

    It works, but it takes ages to do - just wondering if you guys could recommend any jacks for lowered cars?

    Much appreciated.

    As above, a low profile jack is the way to do it.

    Drive your wheel onto a piece of 4 x 2 with one end tapered to ease getting on it, lifts the car high enough to get a standard trolley jack under it. If its still not high enough, use a 5 x 3.

    Ended up buying one of these;

    Liftmaster Pro 2 Ton 80mm Low Profile Long Reach Quicklift Garage Trolley Jack | eBay

    Won it for £93 on auction.
    Quality is abit dubious and not "dual pump" as stated on the listing.
    It fits under the car, maximum hight is just about right - the weight stated is incorrect, its actually 48k! bloody heavy.
