    Rhino Ramps... no work...no grip...

    so i have those rhino ramps....and and im lowered on JDM ver8 suspension...and my garage has that painted surface...the ramps cannot grip....it just slips...and i can get the car on....i can use jacks...but the higher i raise the car...the sketchier it gets becasue of the painted surface...and i dont feel comfortable....id even go as far as to lift one side of the car to get the rhino ramp under...and then do again on the other side...but as ive said before the higher i use the jack..the sketchier it becomes....

    it works perfectly on the asphalt....i have no bumper scraping issues......however i live in a Gated Community with a HOA...(and it would be a violation if i changed my oil outside of my garage)...


    is there any solutions or am i just SOL....it was not a problem changing my oil when i was stock height...but after the suspension stuff...it just made it impossible to stick my head under there......



    THANKS!!!!

    A couple of old rubber floor mats (or something similar) to provide grip?

    No problem. Thinner might be better. It will keep the garage floor all painty - shiny.
