I went through this same thing. Wanting to store cars stacked makes the 4-post the way to go, IMO.
I wouldn't want my suspension sagging when I store the car. Besides, the 'rolling jacks,' jack trays, etc. that fit on 4-post lifts make wheel-off work fairly easy when you want to do that.
The other nice thing about the 4-post lift for daily use is that the posts are at the corners. They don't interfere at all with any of the vehicles doors. Oh, and a 4-post lift doesn't have to be anchored to concrete and can go on the 'standard' 4" of concrete that is code for a garage floor in most places. A 2-post lift takes 6" of high tensile concrete and has to be bolted down.
If I had room for a dedicated work bay where I didn't have to park and only worked on cars I'd get a 2-post asymetric lift.
