Very nice. I am wiring the new shop this weekend so I am hoping to have my two post lift installed in about two weeks. Just curious what the deciding factor was for you to go with the 4 post over the 2 post style?

'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

For me it was not having my suspension hang when stored. With my included jack I have had zero issues working off the lift when needed. I removed my old and installed my new SoT front coilover system with zero issues with regard to lift choice. If I were looking away from storage and more towards working on multiple car suspensions I would have opted for a two post.

Did the install this past weekend. My soul feels good thinking about less time laying on my back. Thinking it also will be a lot easier to do pre-show prep. Which better better get going soon before the Georgia on my Mind MCA show Memorial weekend.

BendPak 9000 4 post portable around the shop on casters if needed. Both kinds have their advantages. Remember not to let your suspension droop on these cars as it is rough on the shocks. Ford made a tool for this, which is just about impossible to find. I made my own out of desperation.  My only suggestion would to be buy american if you can.   Ed   71 vert 429

You may buy an American brand but you will surely get a lift from some unknown manufacturer.
As I've stated before, I bought from a renowned German brand and the lift is EXACTLY the same as yours and others I've seen posted here by different brands. Only the colors change, sometimes maybe the control unit too.
Even the heavy steel "brakets" the parts are bolted to for shipping are exactly the same as those on mine.

As others have mentioned my lift purchase was intended more for storage, but to have the benefit of maintenance when needed.  Unibody cars do not respond well to being suspended on a 2 post lift for extended periods of time.  With the rolling jacks you can get to go between the ramps they are almost as flexible for maintenance work as a 2 post. In addition, when I move I can disassemble and move to the new location without having to unbolt. It can also be moved around the garage for cleaning purposes.  These are a few of the reasons I went with the 4 post.

Say what????  Since when?  It is no more different than using 4 jackstands.  I had Midlife on a 2 post lift for 4 years without any sort of problem.
