Lifting Point Identification
Whether you a lifting the car with a hoist or a jack, the contact points are the same. The body pinch welds are located under the lower door plates and run the length of the car. There are four notches in the pinch weld, two to the rear of the front wheel wells and two in front of the rear wheels. Place bumper or floor jacks at these points.
