    I lift mine up with a motorcycle jack and put 8" wooden blocks under the tires. This is a nice working height to get a drain pan under and not be to cramped taking out the drain plugs.

    Default Room

    My jack stands at the lowest setting is 12". Gives me room for the drain pan, and room to remove the drain plugs! Depending on your drain pan, I like 6" above it to work.

    Default Well....

    There is enough clearance to do an oil change. I do my oil changes on the ground but you do have to get down low...a full table lift would ge nice but I do have other lifts for other work that can be used if you prefer to raise the spyder for the oil change....

    I use 8" high car ramps under the front wheels. Plenty of room.
