I got a 4 post lift...




It's a Rotoary Asemertical.

As you can see I had no problem getting the TR6 up in the air. But when I look under the 930 I don't see any obvious places to place the 4 pads of the lift? I don't want to do this by trial and error.

Can someone help me out with this

Thanks

I lift my 911 on my lift all the time from just the standard lift pads...here is a picture where to lift it from..I do actually tie the front down to the lift arms afetr I first raise it as a precaution b/c it's so heavy in the back....not sure if needed but I take that extra step personally.Also, I have to place the rear pads under the car...then push it back to get the front arms under then i set it up on the proper areas. Also, if you are lowered you may neesd to use a floorjack under the front of the car to h\give it a very slight lift in order to move the pads under the car. I have a Bend-Pak and no issues byt my buddy has another lift with higher lift pads and we had to do it w/ the floorjack.

I only count 2 posts. Great lift though! I wish my ceiling was tall enough to install one!

ooooops my bad. Don't know why I typed 4 post rather than 2 post.

anywho, thanks for the help. Once I get done with some work on the TR I'll see if I can't get the 930 in the air.

Yes, I'm in Maryland. Downtown Frederick to be exact.

and yes,...the list of friends needing to use the lift is growing rapidly LOL


thanks again

Have you met my buddy Mike the Iceman with the DP930? He and his wife live up in your neck of the woods.

I work a lot of Saturdays, and there lies the problem. I'm usually working whenever the local events are scheduled,...but I'm trying.
