    I've wanted a car lift for so long but my funky old 1 car garage is only 6-1/2 feet tall at the sides and 10 feet in the middle. I haven't been able to find a 2 post or 4 post lift where the posts are under 7 feet. it's frustrating doing everything on my back on the ground

    Best thing I ever did was plan my new garage to include a lift.

    How tall are the Max Jax posts? Mr. Kid has one in his garage.

    Yes, I did a cam swap, and a port/polish on my oil pump. I just picked up the alignment tool on ebay to redo the front seal. You can actually watch the oil drip down from the seal at idle.

    The max jax towers stand about 5 feet. When raised they go to about 8 feet, and will give you about 4 feet of room under the car.
