The easiest way to level a car is with a water level....which is simply a long plastic tube(clear)filled with water ,with corks in the ends to keep the water in...You raise the car to the working hight you want and fix one end of the hose to any corner of the car but that end will stay there the other end goes to the other three corners(one at a time)water seeks its own level so when you take the corks out of the ends the water will be the same level at both ends just raise or lower the car to where the water level says to ,It's simple and ez...and extremly accurate....forget about using a 4' level for carpntry work because a car is about 15' long so if your levei is of a little, lets say an 1/8 inch at 4', thats a 1/2" off at 16" ....
