    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg I have this lift in my garage it does not reach both lift points that I use the ZL1 magnetic jack pads on my hellcat can they be used closer on the drip rail to meet my lift pad
    Here's some pics
    Need some ideas
    Last pics shows where ZL1 should be put on car so you can see pad is not long enough to catch them both
    I know car isn't centered over lift but pics give you an idea of what I mean I hope

    Maybe I missed some information but don't we lift at the pinch welds located behind and in front of the wheels? Do you want to lift the whole side of the car (both wheels?)

    Big piece of wood 4x4 along the lift pad, or extend the arms of the lift pads, they slide out I believe?
    Or just call your neither his lift will work

    So my guess is you can only lift it from spots marked out in plastic for drip rails

    DON'T lift from the plastic, it will deform and not come back sometimes, I use a drive on lift with 2 sliding adjustable jack mods to lift front and back from the jack points under the car

    That I know thanks trying to use chassis where it's marked on chassis rail with zl1 red lift jigs but my pad is not long enough to reach both lift points
    Red zl1 lift points are laying on floor to show how far they are from my lift pad

    There has to be extenders available for the lift since every car has different lift points

    I thought about the 4x4 but know room under car for it was thinking metal bar between zl1 lift mounts and lift car that way
    I'm going to need someone to come over and give me some ideas in person I think too

    I wouldn't use a metal plate too flimsy, maybe square steel 1x 4? Be careful you may have to build a jig to secure the square steel to the lift

    Silly question, but hard to tell from the pics, can't you just drive forward a little bit and center up the car a little better? So a similar life at the dealer i had my oil done at. They just drive on and it lifts the car by using almost the entire length of the pinch weld
