Default New Garage Toy for the STi

Decided to finally put a lift in my garage to be able to do routine maintenance on our cars. Didn't get a chance to try it out yet, but hoping to start using it soon.

Did you have to do any "mods" to the concrete, or was your garage floor already good enough?

No mods needed for the concrete. I had the house built in 2013 and told the builder that I wanted to put a lift in eventually and wanted to know what the specs were for the garage foundation. The project manager said it would be done to be able to support a lift since they have received that request plenty of times in our development. The installer drilled the holes and said you should have no issues and that the slab was way thicker than what he is used to seeing in residential homes.

Won't be able to get to max height until I install the high lift garage door tracks. I should have no issue hitting the max height of the lift since my garage has 12' ceilings once the garage door tracks are modified. The installer even commented that a four post would fit no problem if I ever wanted to be able to stack cars.

Cannot walk under this particular model.

My plan is to do basic stuff which don't require a lot of work being under the car. I have access to two/four post high bay lifts at work for those big jobs.

Ah, that's cool. Still beats getting the jack out... Jacking... Getting out the stands... Placing them... Thinking about it a bit... Pondering being crushed under the car... Cursing, because the stands never seem tall enough... etc...

I like it.
