I have one, two would be nice but really not needed unless you need all fours up at one time. Even for a brake fluid flush, I lift back first then do fronts...

I did not need to get a port o john to have my high lifts installed. What part of the country are you in? What were the terms?
Haha, port-a-john was for a home renovation project. Located in mid-Atlantic.

Cool, thanks. A roller bridge would be convenient to move back and forth.

I have an HD-9ST narrow, beware the side brackets as I had less than an inch clearance on either side. My car is. 991.1 GTS. The solution was to use 2inch stacked plywood planks to raise the height so that the tires are at the same height as the brackets, else your rims are toast. The installer mentioned that some owners notch the metal plates but that kills the warranty.
If you go this route you would also need to raise the ramps by the same height, I used plywood planks for that as well.

Just ordered an Autostacker (BendPak). I’ll report back on how this project goes. It’s also going to require some work on the garage door that I think is relatively minor. I have a four post in my track garage and this is going to end up far more expensive. I hope it’s worth it.

What made you select the Autostacker over s single post lift? Iím in the process of trying make a decision and not sure which direction to go. Thanks.

I just ordered a BendPak HD-9. What are the solutions to avoid any/ all fluids from dripping on the car below? I presume I need to order the “4-Post Lift Aluminum Deck Platform” for $975. Are there any cheaper solutions?

Another question regarding the BendPak HD-9... It does not come with an air compressor- which it says I need. What should I buy? Thx!

FYI: I just purchased a GT4 to accompany my 2012 Boxster Spyders.

I got those Bendpak plastic trays: https://amzn.to/2Vfr3vY

You need to get 2 sets

Mine came with two plastic drip trays. Slides between the rails.

Get a basic compressor. 2 gallon. You don't need much volume and I don't recall exactly but the psi needed is nothing much.

You should be able to buy drip trays. There were two options for my Challenger lift, plastic for about $100 and Metal for about $180. Due to the heat in Florida, buy the metal trays as the plastic ones warp and eventually will fail. They usually come in sets of 3

For the Bend Pak lift, you do need air. Any small compressor will work as the volume needed is minimal and the PSI required is less than 120. The air is only needed to release the lift for lowering.
