I can get the emergency flat tire jack under there but that was it. the floor jack wont fit.

and i dont have coilovers on it yet. but the kid before me put some lowering springs on it. I rub my front bumper going in and out of my driveway. and with my 17 inch wheels I rub when turning or hitting any bumps. hence me really wanting to get my coilovers on.

if u dont mind it being heavy i have this one from harbor freight...

I was going to put the S-H's on her car temporarily, but the tires on them are crap. Dry rot and tread seperating from the sidewall on one.
I has 2 BFG's if your are interested.

Fixed my ABS/Traction control light problem today. Had A&H put the computer on it to find that the right rear wheel speed sensor was kaput. I pulled the sensor out to inspect it and discovered one of the wires from the chassis was broken inside the connector. Disassembled the connector and was able to graft a piece of wire to the pin that was broken to repair it. A big thanks to A&H!!
