Using a ramp to get under the car, clearance ok?

Recommended Posts

I have used both and both work fine depending on what you need to do. With the ramps, I can only back onto them. They won't fit under the car so that I can drive up on them. Obviously, if the wheels need to come off then there is only one option.

My 996 has the lowered 030 option so I have problems with ramps at either end.

I purchased a set of low profile Rhino ramps http://shop.store.yahoo.com/rodi/usm11905.html

They still don't fit but only just. I feel certain that a stock 996 would be able to drive up these as the ramp is extra long so it fits right up to the wheel.

Yea they are really worth the money. They are very well made and

they take wide tyres unlike many other ramps. I can use them on my back tyres but they miss by 1/2" on the front. ****!

As I said I am fairly certain on a stock 996 they will work fine as they are low profile and have long runup ramps. For less than $50 they are good value.

$162 at the local parts counter doesn't get you much.  Air filter, pollen filter and oil filter.  I vaguely remember seeing all this stuff for sale on this website for about $88! 


We hoping to bring the maintenance kits back...

Porsche is in the process of changing their complete pricing structure (for parts). I don't know if that is good or bad ;)

Either way the good folks at Sunset Imports are working on it now :D
