Jack the car on the bar that's next to the muffler (the one in between yourself and the muffler). Place the jackstands on the jacking points thats indicated in the manual.

yep...along both sides of the lower frame is a thin steel strip...it has circular grooves in it for optimal jack placement

happy jacking!! thumbsup

Here's a graphic with the jack points on it. I've posted this before, but I can't find the old thread. Oh well, now we have a new one!

Those jacking points are for hydraulic lifts. If your using the scissor jack that came with the car, look along the unibody & there are grooves where the jack goes. Its pretty easy to figure out once you get down & under the car. thumbsup
