I don’t have a brand recommendation for you - I don’t remember who made mine and I think they went out of business. Most are similar.

Having said that, mine is driven by a cylinder/cables originating under one runway (a common set-up). The other runway is just along for the ride. I have a Bugeye so it is very narrow - 53”. I drilled a new set of holes for the righthand runway and moved it in about 6 inches. Without doing that, I think the tires would have been hanging off the inside of the runways.

So, make sure that the space between the runways is narrow enough for your car or that you can narrow it.

BTW, even with the runway moved in, I can lift a 73” wide car (Lotus Esprit).

I'd recommend a brand like Bend Pak, that at least offers ALI-Certified units. There's a lot at risk under a lift, and your home-owner's insurance probably won't want to hear that you chose a lower cost unit sacrificing safety.

Personally, I'm a fan of 2-post lifts__I have two (2) of them__but that's an argument for another day winking smiley
