Didn't see the question but if this is a trolley hoist and not a roof hoist 
I'd also advise comparing the width and height of the legs of the hoist with 
your front suspension, a pal has had to put his front wheels on blocks so 
the legs would fit under the spring pans.  Also check the extension of the 
boom, when getting the engine out of a rubber bumper B I had to go in from 
the side as even at full extent the hoist hit the front of the car before 
the hook was over the middle of the engine.  That entailed dragging the 
whole lot sideways, against the run of the wheels of course, to get the 
engine on and off the gearbox shaft.
