I would get a 2-post. If you're really super worried about what happens to suspension components left at full droop for long periods, you can always back your DD out, then lower the car without taking it off the lift while you're away. Maybe do that once per month.

Thanks for the info. I think I'm leaning heavily toward 2 post the more I think about it as wrenching > storage in terms of priorities.

It's a little over 10.5 feet tall so plenty of room as long as you are not talking about two SUVs.

Ahh you got a foot over me. And my garage floor slopes down towards the doors very slightly.
