Am I expecting too much? Haven’t paid much attention to other cars on lifts but do they normally lift level?

.Measure from ground to position of each arm to check if different side to side. Usually the cables have some adjustment on the ends.

Might unload car from it and run it up and down fully a couple of time then try again.

When you lower to locks does it even out or does it stay crooked? The arms look more even than the car. Lifting from wonky spots underneath?

The slab is not perfectly level, when arms are fully down one set rubs the ground and the other set is like an inch or two off the ground..

Stays crooked... lifting from the same spots on both sides.. the passenger side front arm seems to be angled down harder than the rest of them

Should I do this with a car on it or off it?

Adjust the cable, easy to do and should be done every time a lift is installed. Over time they will stretch slightly and need readjusted as well.

Did you put shims in the pads to make them level against the concrete?

Looking at it again, you're right. And the whole thing seems to be listing with the concrete pad, which puts the ends of the arms at different heights.

When my lifts were installed the installer used plastic wedges with the anchors to shim and level the base of each side first.
