Is This Rice? and some other questions

Kinda weird question...but they're on sale for 10 bucks, though I could get these plain for about 15-20 bucks more...

Obviously I wouldn't get the NOS one...

Do you think this'll fit under my car if I gave it a 1 inch drop? I'm planning ahead...

it can fit regardless of what kit you have or drop you have. just make sure you drive your front tires on a wood to raise it higher. if you still can't get it it get a higher piece of wood. I have BC2 and they go down low, that's how I do mine everytime I lift my car to do change oil. thumbsup

No, those are real jacks, rated to 2 tons.

I think I'm taking the Holley one, since it's the simplest-looking, but I'll see what's left when I get to the store today.

A very good idea, I'll definitely buy this jack and if I have problems later I'll do this. thumbsup

I think they'll be fine, just use the stock jack that comes with the car to get it up a few inches and then use the good jack.

Actually I found something better, a set of a jack and two jack stands for 20 bucks. Had I bought them seperately it would've been 10 bucks for the jack, plus another 30-40 for the stands.

Sorry guys, this jack doesn't give me 20 horsepower. tongue

theres a reason its so cheap, might want to reconsider when dealing with something as dangerous as hoisting a car up and then having it slap on your face...id say its worth the 180 thumbsup

Actually, most of the 2-ton jacks I was looking at ranged from 20-30 bucks, similar prices for the jack stands. I just happened to find a set that was combined (and combos are usually cheaper than buying each part seperately) AND was on sale.

These jacks usually have a safety device that prevents you from jacking up more than two tons. If something goes wrong (and I highly doubt this) these guys are going to have a lawsuit on their hands. deal

Get the NOS one, it will lift faster because it's filled with NOS instead of hydraulics. LOL

Still alive wave

Changed my belt, and now I'm working on flushing the coolant.

I'll also be doing an oil change later this week.
