Hi, so I only found one old post on this which did not appear that anyone had used this type of Jack for working on their Fiero. Just wonder if anyone has since started using a Qucikjack (https://www.quickjack.com/) to work on their Fiero. I plan on working on it over the winter and wonderig if anyone has any input on using these. My garage ceiling height it not high enough for a regular 2 post lift and my concrete is not thick enough for one either.

Thanks,

Looks like it would be good for a car with a frame or unibody. May work well on a Fiero coupe or Formula but I would be concerned about using it on a GT or other Fiero with aero rocker panels unless you made sure the jack was lifting on the frame.

A friend of mine purchased the Quickjack and he likes it. He said that it works well but it cost $1500 (HD version) and that is what I paid for my used two post Rotary lift that is far superior.

I wouldn't work under a car using that device unless it was supported with jackstands.

I've had one for two years and have used it hundreds of times with no issues and I absolutely love it. I have a single car garage with a rather thin floor so a 2 or 4 post lift were out of the question. The quickjack obviously doesnt get you the height that an actual lift does but I've dropped my transmission and subframe out of the bottom of my RX-8 with no issues. It lifts a car up a little more than the maximum height that one could get on jackstands.

One advantage that the quickjack has over traditional lifts is its portability. I regularly use it out in my driveway in nice weather where I have more space. I have loaded it into my STI and let people use it at track days and autocrosses where it is always appreciated.

As far as safety, I have had my 2014 Ford PI Utility up on it and it lifted it without a second thought. I have shaken my cars when up in the air and there isn't much movement. The quickjack has its own mechanical locks and they do the job just fine but if I know I am going to spend extra time under the car doing work, I throw jackstands under the quickjack pivots for an extra mechanical lock.

Ya, I agree that there are better alternatives.....if you have the space. I have a Trans Am and a Fiero in basically a 2 car garage, (its a garage in a garage, front part for the daily drivers, back part for the seasonal drivers with a garage door between the two spaces), so a small footprint and portability is key for me. As for not getting under it without jackstands, I have heard this comment about them before which I do not really understand. The foortprint and structure of these are so much better / stronger than a set of jackstands, but that is just my opinion. Anytime I am under a car regargless of if I am just using jackstands I always have some type of back up to give me time to roll out if a failure happens.

AkursedX, did you get a chance to try it out with your Fiero before you sold it? Just wondering on how it would work with the staggared lift points between the front and back.

Thanks

Have you thought about a 4-post parking lift? I have one that works pretty well fo storing my 2 GTs one over the other plus I get plenty of clearance to work under the cars without strain. Also you can adjust the height of the lift. Makes it easy to do brakes or wheel bearings when they are at waist or chest high. Look for a Peak Model 408 or 409. I have the 409HP. It's 9000 pound capacity and a 6.5 foot lift. The 408 and 409 are rated about 1000 pounds less and only lift 5'-10".

My friend with the Quickjack says that it works on some cars, doesn't work on others. IMO, it might work on a Fiero but the jack points are not inline from front to back and you need to be very careful around the cooling pipes. With my 2 post lift the jack points are the sides/front of the rear cradle and the integral frame channel near the front. I have doubts that the Quickjack would work.

Ya, those were my concerns as well with the Quickjack and the Fiero, the offset lift points along with the coolant tubes do not look like they would work for the Fiero. I may pick up one anyhow. It shoud work on the other cars that I have. I will settle for the jackstands for the Fiero for now.

The 4 post is good but lifts up under the tires. Might not be able to accommodate a brake job or suspension work

My 4-post lift hast a jacking tray. It sits between the wheel ramps and supports the jack. I can use my floor jack, bottle jacks, scissor jacks or jack stands. The tray is movable so positioning is a breeze.

Thanks for all the feedback. As much as I would like the 4 post lift, its not going to work with setup I have. The back part of the garage has a single garage door which I leave closed for the winter so parking under it basically means I can't work on the one on the top as I would need to position it near the center of the garage. So I am settling for the Quickjack, knowing its probably not going to work on the Fiero but it will work for the other cars I have.

Nero, no I have not put a Fiero up on mine. If you haven't seen this, I did find a video of a Fiero up on a Quickjack. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFBj0QIzXOg&t=83s

It's tough to say exactly where he put this up on though. I mainly use the small lift blocks with 4 slotted floor jack pads on top of them and then lift on the rocker panel seam that most cars have (The slots where you insert a scissor jack).

I have been really thinking about this one...
https://www.mytoolequipment...KEAQYBCABEgLY7PD_BwE

Our 2 car garage is pretty snug side to side and the Fiero and Sara's Murano will fit, but there is only about 30" between the two in the center and no room for any post from a dual or 4 post lift.

With this single post setup, there is room along the wall for it and I could change how the car is loaded based on which side or end I needed to work on.

Thanks AkursedX, yes I did see this one, to me it looks like the proper lift points were not being used in that video based on how the jacks are placed.

So for anyone that is interested, I did end up buying a Quickjack. I bought the largest and longest model they had as I wanted to use it on some other things larger than the Fiero but it does work on the Fiero as well. Here are a few pics of it up on the Quickjack. They are expensive for what they are but makes it easier to get the car up off the 4 wheels and provide about 4-5 inches more height than I can get with my jackstands. Does not sound like alot but I find it makes a big difference. Also I can pretty much get at everything I need to because of where the lift points are. So I do not regret getting them, but the price vs the total functionality of the Quickjack is questionable. But if you do not have any other options due to space, these work out pretty good.

Side view. I put some jack stands under as well stacked on some plywood just for added security.

I believe that single post lift MUST be permanently affixed to the floor. It would probably work mounted on a 6" concrete floor but I have my doubts on its stability mounted to a 4" concrete floor. The scissors lift is probably the most stable lift for those with limited space and you can park over it.

That lift is designed to be permanently anchored to the floor. The anchor base is much wider than a traditional lift to better spread out the loads.

There are other ones similar to it that are completely portable (basically mounted on a pallet jack type structure).

Nero,

Any chance you could position it forward at all? So the back lifted in front of the cradle, on the pads the cradle mount tabs come from? With the lift point you have, the cradle can’t be removed, which is the only reason I would want the lift anyway.

Thanks for any info you can provide.

Mike,
Quick question, I'm currently looking at a house with 9' ceilings in the garage. I was wondering f I got a parking lift like you have if I would have enough room to lift my notchie and park my GT underneath it? In other words how tall is it with the car on top and enough room underneath for the other car?

TIA,

Dan

It would be tight but you could do it IF you take off the radio aerial. Allowing 48-inches for each car and 6-inches for the lift beams and parking platform you get 102-inches. A 9-ft ceiling is 108-inches. Tight, but doable if the lights aren't in the way. MEASURE. MEASURE. MEASURE.

The clearance depends on the model. I have a Peak 409HP. It's rate for 9000-lbs (4000-kg) That's more than enough to lift the wife's 4wd Ranger or my Isuzu Trooper. It has about 85" of clear lift in 6-inch increments. I'm 6-ft and I can walk under it without. I can park the trooper under it if I'm careful about pulling into the garage. Otherwise I'd probably snag the luggage rack. I usually keep the Silver GT on the lift and one of the other vehicles in the fleet under. The lift came with drip pans so the Fiero can still mark it's territory if it wants to attachable dolly wheels so you can relocate it easily, and a jacking beam that can accommodate a bottle jack, scissor jack or my floor jack.

Peak makes a model 408H and a model 409H. Both lift about 73-inches high but there is only about 70-inches clear. They are rated for 8000 and 9000 pounds, respectively. Look at this link http://www.peaklift.cn/cpzx...spx?itemid=228&lcid=

This is a made in China product. I'm not a Peak salesman and to tell the truth if I could have found something from Australia or the US competitively priced I would have purchased it. Still, for what I use it for, it fits my needs pretty well . In fact I'm seriously thinking about a Model 408 for the Black GT.

Hi LFiero67, it can slide forward quite a bit as the 'tray' where the lift block goes provides quite a bit of space for adjustment. It would be iffy for it to work with the model I have as it is the longest version, not sure if it would clear. The shorter version should work from what I can tell. However, not sure how good these would be for dropping the cradle as they give you 4-5 more inches of clearance than 'standard' jack stands. I rate these as 'nice to have' as they have their limitations.

Thank you, I currently drop the cradle and then transmission out the bottom on jack stands, so even 4-5 “ would be a nice gain. I figured if I could get the car up, then put it on stands, then put larger blocks in, and lift again, it should be possible to get the car up a fair bit.

Might have to pick one up next time Costco has them.

Thanks again.
