If you find a jack that is low enough let me know!
I am able to pick up the corner of the Ferrari with one hand just enough to roll the jack under the mount for the rear anti-sway bar. After I have the rear up on 2 stands, I jack the side up until I have enough room under the front lower control arm to fit the jack, then block it and roll the jack around to under the control arm (I have to insert the jack from behind the front tire because the front spoiler is almost touching the ground at this point). The frame and suspension are stiff enough so that the whole front end comes up when you jack up one side. (the anti-sway bar mounts pivot on the stands so you need wide-based, beefy jack stands not the cheap, WalMart specials) Then 2 more stands for the front (the cheap, WalMart specials).
I have already told my wife that our next house will have a garage with a lift! I told her my garage requirements (6-car, 10' door, lift, workshop area, insulated, heated, etc.) I told her she can design the house part, my house requirements are some sort of a shower and a working toilet. Other than that I am pretty much open.
