Funny thing is, my car is stock height and I still can't reach the front point. A bit of a pain.

So with the 2 jack method, you start from the side and then lift from the front?

I don't think any jacks will reach the front center jack point (on a lowered s2k) without driving onto ramps/wood first. There was a previous thread where Joey measured the distance and compared it to various jacks. Would be great if there was one though, I'd love one also
How about this one (ignoring the price)? 41 inches long and will get under 2.5 inches. That's almost 3.5 feet.

If any jack can do it, that looks like the one. $400 ouch.

That also looks pretty long. You can get to your front jack point with that one?

I bet it still doesn't work as the angled part towards the handle area is what causes the clearance issue, it bangs into the front lip and bumper preventing the jack from going further.

Yes that is correct, the long jack still bangs into the front lip due to the angled part of the jack, hence you can't reach the front center point. I jack up the driver side a few inches then I can get the longer jack to the front center point. You drop the car in reverse, by placing a jack at the driver side lift point , dropping the front center lift point jack, then dropping the driver side jack. Hope this makes sense.

Makes perfect sense. Thanks for the response. Might have to do that then.

I cant seem to find it on the PA website but will check it out in store. My low-profile jack is great but i need a lot of length to pump the handle so this may be great stage 1 jack.
