Back tires are off the ground. With the Bilstein HD shocks I installed, I have about 3" of extra suspension travel now.
Crappy picture from the ground looking at the car.
I used the taller blocks on all 4 corners, so the lowest point gave me 18.5" of ground clearance. I can stack the shorter block on top of the taller one, and get an extra 2.25" of ground clearance. That will put me right at about 21", which will be plenty for doing most stuff under the Escalade.
Assembling the unit wasn't difficult, but the instructions are kind of vague on what fittings to use on the short hoses that attach to the lifts. There are small fittings and large fittings. The small ones fit on the short hoses, and the larger fittings fit on either end of the longer hoses. Once I got that sorted, I didn't run into any other snags. Instructions say it takes 2.1-2.5 quarts of ATF. I didn't even get to put 2 full quarts in before it was where the instructions said to fill the reservoir to. Instructions say the lines are self bleeding, but I may need to bleed some air out of one of the jacks, because it doesn't lower as quickly after the weight of the vehicle is no longer pushing down on the jacks.
One interesting thing is the instructions say don't lift the vehicle on > 3 degree incline. That seems like nothing.
Each frame is heavy. the 7000 lb units weigh 100 lbs each. The box has a skinny guy rolling one in each arm ?. These are a one at a time roll into place. Also it would be helpful to have 2 people when operating this thing. One can make sure the jacks are in position while the other raises the frames. It's probably a little more difficult to line up on vehicles with higher ground clearance. The short hoses that attaches to the frame is also on the roller side of the frame. I can easily see this pinching the hose as you roll the unit around. I'll have to keep an eye on that for future use.
Overall, I think i'm going to like using it. It will certainly beat driving up on ramps, or using jack stands for times when I need more than one tire off the ground.
edit: I should add, I bought these from Home Depot. 28% off MSRP, and free shipping.
