With my prokit I have issues jacking up car so I plan on getting a low profile one. I also plan to lower car with sportlines again and seeing what Jack u guys recommend?

This is what I got for my Camaro that is lowered on Strano's. Cheap as all HECK as well as HEAVY and very well built. It's not at long/baller as the one Meent posted, but for the price its perfect

This is what I use. My car is NOT lowered, but this jack goes in with plenty of room to spare. My Eclipse is slightly lowered and has a body kit on it and it still works fine (I drive it onto 2x4s to be safe). Some harbor freight stuff is not so great but this has been very durable. It lifts my cars, my truck and our SUV easily and was only 80 bucks.

That's the same one I've got, except it's the low profile version. It works surprisingly good for being a low priced jack. http://www.harborfreight.com/rapid-p...ack-68049.html

Second. Got it on sale for $60, and for the price, you can't beat it. It's a quick pump, so it takes a little more effort to lift the car (when my 11y/o brother helps me in the garage, he isn't heavy enough to do it), but it really doesn't pose a problem. Well built, low-profile, great price.

Omega low profile is what I have. My car and my buddys vette are both slammed and I can go right under the front without having to drive our cars up on blocks or anything.
