    As title states looking for a recommendation for a decent low entry trolley jack for the RS?

    Had looked at SGS and seemed like decent value for money however seen some mixed reviews on the quality of their products/durability.

    What’s everyone else using trolley jack and axle stand wise? Only needing something that will get the car high enough to get a set of stands under for removing wheels etc nothing too serious.

    Thanks, Neil

    Once I have spare funds I’m going to buy the Sealey 2001LEBL.  Can be picked up for around £100 if you are not fussy on colour…

    Whichever Jack you choose you may also need a jacking block from 9-Designs on this site

    I have an alloy race jack was on offer locally just after Christmas reduced from £175 to £129, its light 2 ton lift and will easily go under side skirt even with jacking block, which I also purchased from 9 designs.

    Get a low profile one that will be low enough to go under the car. I have one of these..

    Mine is a low jack with easy access under the side skirt and a flat rubber jacking pad that will not damage the jacking point pinch weld. You basically get what you pay for.
