    Ramps

    Title says it all. Anyone have a good recommendation for a set of ramps for a stock height 15 WRX. My old ramps are thrashed and to high anyways, looking to get a new set before I need my first oil change. I'd rather not go buy lumber to get my car off the ground. Thanks as always.

    Plastic or rubber ones? I read they were slightly high for the 2015's, but then again the source was not a good one.

    I don't think you'd have an issue with these at stock height. I could be wrong though. Might want to get some measurements before you buy anything.

    I've heard nothing but good reviews on the rhino ramps. Not sure about clearance on the '15s... but you could jack up your car and slide them into place. I know that kills the convenience factor of ramps.. but it's still more sturdy than jack stands.

    True story. I'd buy a couple pieces of wood before I jacked it up. I'd just saw them down and store them together. Want to avoid that if possible but we'll see. Thanks for the replies fellas

    I have rhino ramps and they rub on my 14 WRX so I made some out of wood. They raise up only 3", but that's enough for most things and if I need more I made my wood ramps so they connect to the end of my rhino ramps. No more rub and greater lift.

    Rhino ramps are great. Don't know the price compared to others but they're pretty lightweight and strong. If you have isdues with ground clearance, you can always put some wood if front of the wheels first to get it a bit higher off the ground and yhen drive up the ramps
