I bought the #5000.
Maybe online they sell the #7000, not in the store.

If I had room for a 4 post I would have had one when I moved in my house 8 years ago.
This a is a great alternative, especially if you don't have the room or ceiling height.
And if you really needed it, you could take these to the track, totally portable.

I saw a few of them at SCCA autocross Nationals. They make it easy to give all of your suspension a once over.

I think they are 70lbs each and they are available in 120v and 12v.

Regards the Steeda jack rails: I put mine on last summer. They now look approximately 35 years old, completely overtaken by rust. They’re actually migrating rust to the body pan. I’m taking them off and having them re-coated.

I’ve had to re-do every “powder coated” item I’ve ever bought from Steeda due to rusting; even their hood struts rusted. The quality of the actual base metal seems decent after stripping, but their powder coating is no better than spray paint. If you live where there is salt or brine spread on the roads, I strongly suggest getting them done by an industrial coating specialist. Costs a lot but worth the extended life & looks.

Took them off tonight. Racing tomorrow so it’ll be good to drop the weight. They’re badly pitted on the “tops” where they were against the body pan. What was left of the “powder coating” is flaking off in big pieces.

Wow. How long have you had them on?

I got a set in the beginning of this summer, I'm probably going to remove them for winter tho even tho mine doesn't go in the snow. No point in having them rust against my frame in the months where I don't usually jack up the car.

I've never gotten anything powder coated after the fact, what should that cost (roughly)?

Sounds like I need to look at mine also. When I put my winter wheels on I may just pull mine off.

I installed them June 2018.

Powder coating costs vary widely around here, as does the quality. I blast and prep myself and my company has a preferred vendor that I am allowed to use. He charges me basically $50-$100 for anything like wheels, strut braces, CAI boxes, springs, control arms, etc. ....as long as it’s black! I have to wait until he’s doing a run but it’s worth it to get real industrial grade powder coat. I’ve had a set of cheap Chinese-made steel wheels that were rusty when they came out of the box that he coated seven years ago and they’re not rusting except where the lug nuts and balance weights chafe and even that hasn’t migrated!!

I’ll tag up with Steeda and see what kind of relief I can get. I don’t see where they make any corrosion claims so I’m not expecting anything. Years back I went through it with them regards my 2010 FuSport (full Steeda suspension - basically every stock part replaced) and I just had it all recoated and moved on.
