Need advice - car jack

Whats the best mechanical or hydraulic jack to use for lowered vehicles (2" drop). My vehicle doesnt have the standard jack holes so i need to buy something that will lift from the bottom carriage. Thanks in advance.

PS: I also have concerns if i ever get a flat. What do you guys use for slammed cars?

Oldschool..

you could buy the floor jack for lowered car. aka racing jack.

or you could get away with using a wooden lamp and a regular floor jack.
