Installing a Four Post Lift

Installing a four post lift can be a great addition to your garage or workshop, providing you with extra storage space and the ability to work on vehicles more easily. Here are some general tips and steps to consider when installing a four post lift:

  1. Prepare the area: Before starting the installation, make sure you have a suitable area in your garage or workshop for the lift. Clear the space and ensure there is enough room for the lift to be fully extended without any obstructions.

  2. Check the instructions: Read the installation manual or owner's manual provided by the manufacturer. This will give you specific instructions and guidelines for your particular lift model.

  3. Gather the necessary tools: Make sure you have all the tools required for the installation. This may include wrenches, sockets, a drill, and other basic hand tools.

  4. Secure the lift to the ground: Start by securing the lift to the ground. This is typically done by drilling holes and inserting bolts to anchor the lift. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the specific torque specifications and recommended bolt size.

  5. Align the four posts: Use a chalk line or other alignment method to ensure that the four posts are properly aligned. This will help ensure that the lift operates smoothly and safely.

  6. Tighten all bolts: Once the lift is properly aligned, tighten all the bolts to the specified torque. This will ensure that the lift is securely fastened and stable.

  7. Optional accessories: Depending on your needs, you may want to consider adding accessories to your four post lift. These can include rolling bridge jacks for full wheel service or other attachments that expand the functionality of the lift.

It's important to note that the specific installation process may vary depending on the manufacturer and model of the four post lift. Always refer to the manufacturer's instructions for the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Remember, if you're unsure about any step of the installation process, it's best to consult a professional or contact the manufacturer for guidance.
