I finally stopped deluding myself into thinking that I'll ever have a car that needs a jack that goes this low.
Long time lurker on Stanceworks, finally decided to register to try and sell my Zinko aluminum racing jack
. (I've got a lot of references on other forums, mainly the VW and Miata world.)
It's the lowest aluminum jack on the market, with a minimum saddle height of 2.25" (and a lift of 17.375"). Ive used it about a dozen times, and its an absolutely wonderful jack. The action is smooth, and moving up from the Torin its been a HUGE improvement.
I now wish I had spent more and gotten the Brunnhoelzl instead - the Zinko is awesome at getting under cars, but even on my lowerized VW, there's still like 2 inches of clearance :facepalm:
The jack is in great condition, I've only had it for a couple months and the only visible wear is on the front caster and an indent on the jack pad.
Like most high quality jacks, you can order all of the parts, including gasket/valve kits, separately from Zinko. I called them a couple times to ask various questions about it (FTR, the weight is ~34lbs). You're ensured that you'll always have support and this jack will last a long time, unlike the Torin/HF special. After careful consideration, I think that $420
is the lowest I accept before its not worthwhile to try and upgrade. The cheapest I found it is at ASEDeals for 518+shipping.
I'm located in the NorCal Bay Area, but willing to ship at cost.
Anyways, onto the pics.
Sorry, it came with the flame decals...
It was like I bought a DD bra for my B cup car
Slight wear on the front caster
Great machine knurled handle
Thanks for looking. If you're interested, shoot me a PM.
