I've installed about 30 two post lifts, and a few 4 post. A couple of tips for guys thinking about putting one up- I always build the complete lift on the ground, laid down. No ladders to climb and no heavy stuff to lift 12' up. Once it's built, 3 guys on each post to set it up, (or a forklift). Level one post, then the other. No measuring- if the posts are level, the lift is right. Also, always drill the holes in the concrete all the way through- if you ever move the lift, just hammer the studs level with the floor so you don't have to cut them off. I can usually have one up and running in 3-4 hours, but at 52, I'm about done with doing them. Gettin too hard for this old man.
