    Jacking points and axle stands

    Hi,

    I found this great thread but the pictures have gone http://the-corrado.net/showthread.ph...ey-jack-points

    I want to be sure Iím jacking and supporting in the right place. So far I have only needed to jack up front.

    I jack up at the rear of the subframe (or is it wishbone) mounting point to the chassis. I then place my axle stand with a hockey putt on the sill jack point. I keep the jack in situ sharing the strain. Is this okay?

    I havenít done the rear but any tips would be appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Done some digging and found the info and pics - sharing for others:

    Generally - always use wood or some rubber on top of jacks and axle stands - hockey putt or old suspension top mount.

    These are the jacking points. Best to not use a trolley jack on the seems. Either use the 2nd pic or some wood behind the seems in the green areas to jack:

    When jacking the the front use the green bolt or around it if also using it to support on axle stands:

    Alternatively you can use the rear of the front sub frame, but my jack does't easily reach that far.
