[Healeys] Lift for Healeys

the 4 post lifts have an accessory Jacking Plate which slides between the 2 tracks you drive up on.  with the Jacking Plate, you can remove tires and easily work on brakes...two at a time.

I would recommend the 4 post lift because:

they are somewhat mobile
don't have to be secured to the floor
easy to drive on
come in 110V or 220V (my 3 are 110V)

I would order the extra long aluminum ramps for better Healey clearance...especially the left side....and the drip trays for parking other vehicles underneath and free from oil drips.

Just my 2 cents worth.
