    So I have been planning on getting a service/storage lift for a while now that I got my Cat I'm torn between a 2 post or a 4 post im thinking the 2 post would be best for the hellcat but mb some of you guys would know which one I guess for service the two post is better bc more room to get at stuff but if your going to store another car under then I suppose the four post drive on style is better ......Thoughts? Mb DrBuick can chime in from the Tech world? Thanks in advance for your help

    i wouldnt consider anything but a 4 post

    love my bendpack


    im dealing with some damage to my gt500 from a 2 post right now....thinking the Ford dealer did something funny last year....i just feel safer driving it up onto the lift rather than positioning arms onto my frame

    plus it spreads the weight out over 4 spots vs 2....my garage has a normal 4" pour.....no cracks or issues....with a 2 post your putting 2200lbs + the lift weight on each post....while im putting 1100 on each post....

    i see no advantage other than cost

    love my lift....before getting it PM me and ill give you some details....there's things you need to know to make the decision and install easier

    4 post is for heavy trucks and storage. Hard to do Susp work and engines on a drive on

    4 post lift is what you should get if you are using it for storing...

    You can get a rolling jack on a 4 post and still swap tires and do suspension work.

    From what I understand....you shouldn't store a car on a 2 post.

    I have a Quality lift. 9k lb limit.

    There are great points to having both. I have a 4 post and I've also done suspension work (Jeep lift kit installs) under it with the bridge jack I bought with it.

    What brand is that you got.... Been looking at the Bendpak it has a rolling sissor jack available which is air powered which is nice but I think it would be easy enough for me to weld up a platform and attach a couple bottle jacks for this anyway I'm still deciding the 2 post is nicer in the fact that their is less stuff in the way when your working on undercarriage anyhow thanks for your info! :cool::cool:
