Reverse it in as the back will probably have more clearance than the front, or try and change the angle of the slope at the bottom (closest to the garage) to reduce the angle... :)

Yep I had the same problem with my Zed. I made up some timbers 12" wide. basically got my mate who works in a timber yard to cut me one sheet of 8x4 3/4 shuttering ply into 4 lengths. Then screwed those to some 4x2 sawn timber. This effectively raises the garage floor about 4&3/4 inches but only where the wheels run, I also knocked up a couple of short ramps just to get me over the edge. What happens is as you drive on the front of the car carries on going straight up until you have enough clearance and then it levels out. Sorry if thats a really crap explanation but if its of interest and help i'll take a pic for you tomorrow when its light as its easier that way.

Sorry for the delay, hope this helps. Basically there are 4 of them, two for each side. Also allows you to get a nice drip tray or whatever under the car if you need to. Also took a pic of the ramps I knocked up.
