My SSEi clears when I use the right ramps, check these out. I got them when I needed to change oil on a Honda Prelude with low clearance.

Put short pieces of 2x4'* in front of the ramps to increase you angle before your tires actually hit the metal of the ramp.

I hate using ramps, I always feel like I will drive over the edge of them But like others have said, when needed I just use 2x4s.

EDIT: This is not a mechanical problem so we are going to Gen Chat folks.

I just use a jack and stands. No worries about clearance, and easier to store
