I have to take my Fiero to the transmission shop. It is lowered. Has anyone had problems loading theirs onto a trailer? Thanks to all

Going to need some extra 2x4's!

Even the flatbed trailers need them for my daughter's modified 87 FT with Norm's front end.

Thanks for the response. What do you do with the 2x4's?

Here's what I do, I have two small pieces of wood that I put in front of the ramps, as the car rolls over them, it raises the front end enough to not scrape the ramps. Mine needs only 1/2 inch step up. Look close, you can see what I use. Sounds like yours will need more of a step up. Good luck.

^^^ Like said. ^^^ You can place a couple of bricks or cap blocks underneath the ends of the ramps, then place the ends of your boards (2x6's are better) between the bricks/blocks and the ramps. The longer the boards and higher the blocks, the less likely to scrub. On long boards, I've placed 2 stacked blocks underneath the ramp and 1 block mid-length of the board for support. Don't do like I did and forget to take them along for unloading.
