This guy went ham restructuring the concrete but it gives you an idea that it can be done at least.
That is an amazing garage build. That guy did some great work and made that space awesome. WANT.

That is a really cool lift. I like how portable it is. I feel that the garage space would need to be decent to take advantage of that, but maybe not. It looks like it might end up around the middle of the drive shaft, so motor and transmission work could be accomplished. I am still swinging off of the maxjax

I previously drilled a test hole in the middle... and it was not encouraging, I'd have to drill a lot of holes to feel comfortable. I also have 3 major cracks in the slab as the concrete heaved near the door.

#1 seems like the best compromise, otherwise a proper 2 post is the only real way to go.

#1 allows you full work on the suspension and full access to the under of the car. Add a creeper and a short stool and you should easily be able to comfortably navigate any project. Also takes up the least amount of space.

Reality often does. I know I could pour a whole floor or just foundations for the lift but I have a hard time making that worth it. I don't have a timeframe for this but it is happening sooner rather than later.

Thanks!

It's cool they are independent for storage but the 4 posts do come with dollys so it's easy to move the 4 post around if needed

What pisses me off, is when I dumped Photobucket a year ago and went to Imgur, I didn't put all the photos I had from PB onto Imgur, some of those were pics of my lift.

I have a Bend-Pak HD9-ST. It is a 9,000 pound, 4-post lift. The ST is a narrower version to fit inside of most garages. It is a "free-standing" lift and can have the dolly's like someone else posted here on theirs, HOWEVER, I too was a little leery of it not being securely anchored to the ground, so my father-in-law and I drilled into the concrete and anchored it.

Unfortunately West Chicago wouldn't let me lift the ceiling of the garage to accomodate the maximum lift height of the lift, but it is enough to roll under it sitting upright.

For bigger vehicles, like my Suburban, I have an air powered "bumper lift" (I actually lift by the frame minf you, NOT the bumper). You can see it supporting the front of the Suburban (you can also see one of the posts of the lift in the garage), and I have jack stands under the back.



I'll have to upload some when I'm home.

Did find this of the GTO on the lift, looks like I had it all back together after I installed the Monster Level 4, the FLT street performer T56, single piece driveshaft and rear u-joint conversion, and I just needed to re-fit the exhaust.
