    Looking for good floor jack.

    My currant floor jack is a piece of crap and I'm starting to research for a new one. I HAD ENOUGH. The one I have is a older one but it doesn't let the car down easy at all , it's more it like throws the car to ground so it's gotta go. Anybody got any suggestions?

    I use a cheap 80$ aluminum quick lift racing jack.

    It will lift up my 04 CTS-V but not my Suburban. So easily lifts the AA2.

    I've been using this on both the Atom and the 5,000lb Cayenne and when I had the C7 Z06. It's not only powerful and reliable, it's also low profile, and light.

    Way cheaper from the source... like a lot of things on Amazon. If someone can sell it on Amazon with their 15% sellers fee, then you can likely find it cheaper somewhere else.

    I've been using it for over 3 years. Maybe it was a good price then, but that's good to know. I've been using Camel Camel Camel to track prices and buy when there is a large dip.

    I also own some Amazon stock haha

    I never liked the way you have to jack up the front of the car so a came up with this and it works "Awesome". This way your in the center of the car and you can use jack stands and they never interfere with the floor jack at all. Added some rubber for protection of the frame and also it helps grip onto it.

    You can see that the radiator tubes are completely safe and not in the way to be damaged now.

    I use the Arcan XL2T. Low profile and fits under the car easily.

    I had this one before I bought the aluminum one. I lifted it a few times over the wicker bill on the C7 Z06 Z07 then decided it's too damn heavy and I'm going to throw my back one day.

    Very slick, not doubt about it. But if you jack the Atom by either one of the frame rails you use with your arrangement, both front wheels come off the ground nearly evenly because the chassis is so stiff. Is there a reason you don't like to jack on just one frame rail?
