Default Ramps fitting under 04 RS?

I went to install my new Kartboy shifter bushings last week and found that the ramps I was going to use are too tall and I would just push them with the bumper when trying to drive up them. They are a set of generic metal ramps and are even too tall for jacking the car up and sliding them under the wheels.

Does anyone know if rhino ramps are low enough to clear the bumper of an 04 RS? Stock suspension, no drops or anything. I'd measure myself, but I'm heading to Pep Boys after work (set of 2 is on sale for $17!) so I won't be able to check myself.

Rhino ramps worked for my 04 wagon, don't see why they won't work for you. The ones I got has a picture of a Corvette on the ramps on the packaging.

Yep, rhino ramps even work for most Miatas, and at $20 a pair on frequent sale, you can't beat the price!

Just put something in front off the ramp like a 2x4 so your tire goes up on that first then up onto the ramp. I've been doing that since I was sixteen. Just make sure the boards are there when you back down.
