Yeah so, my car is not "slammed" according to the miata forum, but I am having a problem.

I went into ez-lube on sunday to get an oil change because they have the lowest rails around their dungeons....that I know of. they are about an inch and a half maybe 2 inches high. I have always taken my cars here when I'm too lazy or don't have a place to change it myself. My problem is that when I went there on sunday to get a change.....

My oil pan hit the rail!!! O_O Luckily nothing was damaged but here's where I need help.

If there does rise an occasion again where I need to take it to a shop to change oil or anything really, does anyone know of a place around the IE that has super low dungeons or racks? I would have tried sears because they were going to drive it up the alignment rack (which might have worked) but they were out of mobil 1.

thanks
_enzo

If I can't find anything I'm going to have to raise the car a little bit. (sorry Christian Razz)



































nah just kidding I'll just have to save to buy myself some tools to at least get that done. I need to buy tools anyways. Laughing

i get it done at firestone, kinda pricey but they put it on the 4 point lift, so your car can be as low as you want and the arms for the 4 point lift will sure fit under it. Also you can look at firestone.com, they have coupons for oil changes or different services.
