Maybe use a really small one to jack it up enough to get that one under it ?

I picked up a low profile jack at summit racing a while back for a couple hundred bucks. Works great with my lowered stang. My brother picked up a similar one at harbor freight for around 75 bucks.

My car sits lower than yours. All you need is a mini low rise floor jack. Try contacting a snap on or matco tool guy and get one. You also can try pepboys I think I remember seeing some there

Re: jack

I bought the low profile jack from harbor freight and I still need to drive onto 2x4s to fit the jack under far enough to reach the k member. I guess its the price we pay, lol.

Like the others have said, I use 2 short pieces of 2x4's and set each one in front of car ramps. Drive up and gives me enough clearance without scraping. Just did this tonight to pull out the O2 sensor after the cat on passenger side due to a code. Pulled O2 and wire brushed gunk off and good as new. No more code.

And it works!

Re: jack

Mine sits too low for a normal floor jack as well. What I do is carefully jack up one side from under the a-arm(the jack barely fits in a certain perfect arrangment), put a jack stand on that side, and move the jack to regular position and start jacking it up slowly and put in the second jack stand. Takes about 2 mins longer than regular jacking on a stock stanced stang.
