    Car Jacking on an incline

    whats the best and safest way to jack a car up on my drive, which has about 5 degrees incline. the road i have is also poor for jacking up on and the car is lowered quite a bit.

    i have a standard jack, trolley jack, 2 axle stands. and to be honest i dont like the 2 jacks i have.

    i was looking at the metal ramps you can buy, the ones specifically for lowered cars. are these my best options?

    obviously ramps limit me not to work no wheels/suspension.

    cheers for your help.

    Lock the steering, use the handbrake and use 1st gear (or reverse depending which way the car is) . You should be good now

    i've jacked mine up on slopes loads.

    if i wanna work under the front end i'd put a brick under my back wheels with it facing up the slope.

    stick it in 1st aswell

    jack it up and stick some axel stands under it.


    safe as houses
