We have good nice quality lifts in our shop, you can do this with jack stands and a jack in your driveway if you want, but it's cold outside right now, so we're doing it inside the shop with a lift. He's going to pick 4 good solid points. Our lifts have different levels you can raise the pads to to raise the car up level. So he's going to grab a point in the front and the back on all 4 sides so that it goes up leveled and safe. The arms extend out of the rack as well as the swing left and right. And these are a-symmetric, the rear arms are much longer than the front arms so that you can put a car on the rack and still open the doors. It allows the car to sit further back relative to the post.
