For what it's worth - everything I've done on all of my cars (brakes, swap/rotate wheels, exhaust system swaps, header installs, a billion oil changes give or take, starters (996 and other), water pump, even a supercharger install (NOT on my 996, unfortunately)) have all been done with Rhino ramps and/or jackstands. I have found that laziness is a MUCH larger impediment when it comes to me starting or getting through a project than not having a lift. :D

Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

Our "blizzard" turned into about 2" of snow. Still cold, though

I've got a couple of ancient Rhino Ramps, but I will have to do some measuring because I think the angle on these is too steep for my lowered 911. Maybe.

I've got a decent low-profile floor jack and some vintage jack stands with the straight pins, not the ratcheting type. When the combination of weather and willpower is right, it'll happen. :)

PS: I actually remembered to order the parts today. So when the weather clears in May, I'll be ready. :mrgreen:

thanks. I'll have to see if the floor jack will get it high enough for me, or whether I can parlay that into a good excuse to order in a Quik Jack. ;)
Tell the wife you've been told you absolutely NEED QuickJacks to do this install, without the instal, the sun will not rise the next day and your junk will fall off, so ultimately it's in her best interest ;)

Seriously easy fit. You do need a 26mm deep socket though. Shallow doesn't get a goo enough bite.
