    The Pittsburg one I recommend is great for my 2011 Camaro ss..
    And heavy duty to hold extra weight!!

    be careful, that company is not affiliated with Prothane, just a Re-Seller

    I have a mastercraft (Canadian tire) that was my grandfathers...my dad has a nearly identical version I think just a decade-ish newer. Dad bought his in ‘84. Just a 1.5 ton. Has put up with any abuse I’ve thrown it’s way. I also have a 90’s craftsman 3ton. It’ll lift anything 1/4” on a single stroke! (Ok thinking that one is worn out)
    I’m just not overly keen on depending on a cheap service jack for lifting. I’d look more towards hein Warner. Especially if you want it to last. Long gone are the quality “store brands”

    Oh and,
    ALWAYS USE JACKSTANDS!
