    new jack?

    i just lowered my wrx with the JDM Ver.8 STi springs/struts and my jack that i use doesnt fit anymore. ...i cant afford a lift...so do you guys have any suggestions on what kind of jack i could use Prefereably Craftsman. im guessing ill need something thats low profile and has a long reach.

    what do you guys use when you lowered your car?

    Assuming you have jack stands, cause when using a jack you should have the car supported by jack stands when your under it. I jack up my passenger side first on the jack plate and then slide a jack stand in. Then I can go and jack it up from the front. I got eibach prokits so i'm probably lower than your setup so it should work.
