thats why we put blocks under both front tires and the ground was level and considering the drain pulg is on the back of the oilpan it all worked out just fine. and i seriously dont think i can fit under this car. ive tried before and its just not cool. im like 5' 10" and weigh like 170 so ya i could trim down some. but who needs it? chicks dig 16yr olds with a paunch right?

I don't need to lift my car to change my oil. I can reach everything within arms reach.

Trofeo, the Bonnevilles dont have a body notch, and the stock jack is a pita, unless you have an impact wrench to actuate it. If you do, it'* NASCAR pit-stop quick. Trust me

Low rider is right Don, off topic, but when I had to change some lights in my sidemarkers I couldn't fit me head under the car to see up there. Had a gash to prove it too.

Sorry...please continue :P

The GM Jack IS a JOKE! I've already broken 2 of them! That was to just changing tires too!
As for being to get underneath without jacking it up, well I'm 5'7" & weigh about 125 lbs, plus skinny as hell! I can't get slide under my 92 SE either!

another 'ditto' here too... the riv is a little over 5 inches off the ground.. who can fit under that. lol. I couldn't get the ramps to fit under my car either so I just take the car in for oil changes.. it'* only $15 anyway. It'* worth it to me..

Okay, I never said I fit under my SE (I'm almost 40, with all the "shape changes" that ususally involves) but I can reah every thing I need to for an oil change without jacking the car up. Maybe I do have gorilla arms...
