    Question about jacking up my car for service - ASAP

    I drove the back up on ramps, and now I'm jacking up the front and putting jack stands under both sides.. I placed the jack stands dirrectly in front of where the factory jack goes. Is this a good place for them? I don't want to bend anything with it sitting up on the stands.

    That'll work, or you can use the frame just a little further towards the inside of the car.

    I lke to put them on the frame. I think the jacking points will work fine. But I must ask, if you are going to jack the car using the jack point, how are you going to exchange the stands for the jack if you'r eputting the stands in the sam place?

    not the jack points, right in front of them.. I'm sticking the jack stand dirrectly infront of the jack, then pulling the jack out and jacking up the other side

    Yeah, the front and center diffs are integrated with the tranny.

    A Search revealed this. Please open it. It has a few pictures of the Jacking Points for our cars.

    Jacking Points and Torque Specs?

    Now that would be bad.
