Hey that's a time saver to leave you ramps and oil pan sitting on the driveway/garage floor. JK

Do you leave the cover off that's under the car? I don't have any ramps that the front bumper won't hit. I have jack stands and I have to jack a side up a bit to fit my floor jack under the front. Takes too much time for me. I would like to find some ramps that the bumper won't hit.

They have ramps for you. I think soccerluvr4 has the race ramps brand?

The Harbor Freight ramps have a gradual incline and are fairly inexpensive. They work fine for non-lowered Mustangs.

Be forwarned, I had a pair of those exact same ramps and they cracked when I drove my car up onto them. If the surface that they are resting on isn't *perfectly* flat, these plastic ramps will crack and you risk serious injury. And yes, they're proudly made in the USA too.

I've never had a set of the thick plastic ramps break on me ever. I drive lowered cars up on them all the time. $10 at Home Depot gets you a 1x8" board and cut off a few 3 foot pieces and lengthen the ramps with them.

Now if you are SLAMMED, then yeah you may need a jack to put the car up on ramps. Low profile quick ratio jack on the subframe and up she comes pretty damn quick.

The HF ramps are not made from very thick plastic, which is a design flaw.

I now just use a stack of old 2x10s that have a bevel cut on one of the short ends. Works like a charm and scored the wood for free.

Good thing I don't have the HF ramps then I guess. My ramps are Autozone/Wal Mart IIRC. I dunno.

I DO have a HF low profile jack and engine stand and tool sets tho lol. I've done 3 transmission changes with the 301 piece HF tool kit I got for $150 and the only thing I broke was a 3/8" universal that they replaced for free.

I have used them quite a bit but I guess they've been fairly level. I made up some boards to raise them a bit and help level them on my lawn.Click image for larger version

Yeah...You can't go wrong with their tools for the price. But they do have a lot of other stuff that doesn't last very long.
Of course everything I buy I use the 20 or 25% off coupons as well as stock up on the free flash lights and tape measures. LOL

I'm really lucky to have a great dealer

I just took my car up this morning to get the tires rotated. I always ask for my guy "Willie" to do anything on my car.
He is an old Ford Mechanic and is retired from that and just works in the quick lube department which is a separate building from the repair shop. It is spiffy clean and I get to look at the bottom of my car.
Willie goes through his check list and makes sure everything is OK. He checks tire pressure and torques the lugs to 100 ft.pds.

I good $12,00 that I don't mind spending to have me not trying to do it in the Florida 95 Degree heat.

Ronnie

It just sucks that there must be that many dummies out there to the point these dealers just continue to milk our money. I am glad that I have a decent common sense to know when I'm being scammed/cheated out of my money. Even with other things like going to a Doctor who wants to put me through vigorous tests when initially I went in for a hernia....

Appoint me to a surgeon so I can get this fixed but NOOOO he wants to run tests on my blood, EKG's, bone density, circulation tests, allergy tests, etc....nothing to do with my hernia and when I brought up about him finding me a surgeon....its almost as if he forgot...."Oh, right a surgeon I'll get right on that, in the mean time I want you to do a test for clogged arteries..." I am 26 years old....I dont even eat out... I dont even remember the last time I went to a McDonalds, Jack in the Crack, Wataburger, etc....So tell me again why you think I am completely unhealthy? Saying I have high blood pressure....130/80 is not even elevated. Freaking CROOKS! Preying on the poor...

I'd bet good money more than 50% of ppl would actually fall for the "blinker fluid" thing. For something that they NEED to exist on a day to day basis. Same ppl who call the geek squad to come out to fix their computer when their computer says they need the latest java version or something... lemmings.

At the risk of going OT, many of those routine tests would be part of any writeup before a surgical procedure.

Actually, that systolic is a bit high and the BP would be classed as pre-hypertension if the readings stay in that range.

Sorry but 140/90 will be considered Pre hypertension 130/80 is acceptable as normal BP. Ask me I know, I deal with this everyday lol.. 130/80 is perfectly a good BP but as far as those tests are all right testing before procedure just to cover there basis and not get sued if something goes wrong. Sorry just had to say something I know something about lol..

I'm sorry, but unless the guidelines have changed recently, I have to disagree.

Everything I find on the web says...
140/90 = Stage 1
Above 120/80 = Pre-high blood pressure

Something wrong here.??

My dealer has a separate waiting area where you can sit and see the whole shop through a huge window. You can see exactly what the techs are doing.

To the OP you really cant compare 150 vs. the 3 dollar part because that 150 included labor. Although the Ford clip would have likely been more it would not have been 150. When you consider (depending on area) dealership labor rates I've seen them anywhere from $75/ 125 an hour that's really not that bad.

It still amazes me that people have no issue paying a lawyer, accountant, etc. hundreds of dollars an hour. Yet complain when they are asked to pay someone with a skill to fix their car. At the end of the day all the above are a skill; if you can do it for free great, if not expect to pay someone with that skill. Are there dealerships that are not honest/ ethical? Sure, but that applies to just about any trade you can name.
