Re: Auto to manuel

Well high enough to get under, at least :)
Now I'm not an Escort person, but if I can drop a Falcon auto onto my chest and roll the creeper out from under the car with it, the Escort box shouldn't be any heavier than that.
I reckon, since it's about 5 or 8 hours job, he'd charge more than the box cost ya

Re: Auto to manuel

I made my own.
Tree stumps and stacked bricks or spare wheels work well :)

Most of the axle stands I see are too low, designed only for changing tyres/brake pads.
While the car ramps available work, they really get in the way I find.

Basically I think you might just have to look around for something high enough, I think I might have seen a set in Toolmart for like $70 which would do.
