hello celica owners,

are there center jack points on the celica as to lift either both rear wheels or both front wheels at the same time? if so, can you please tell me where to find them?

if you talkin about the sides, you can put it anywhere where the metal is at below the sides. they go down half inch down or something from the sides all throughout the sides.

O----O

the O's are ur tires and ---- are the side where you gonna lift it from. for front to jack up, O- jack it up there. ull see that the metal that sticks down half an inch cuts and then continues. that area is recommended. german cars have marks on the sides at the bottom on the body(plastic).

yes, i know where the side jack points are as indicated in the owner's manual. but when i had my springs installed, the installer placed a jack under the front as to simultaneous lift both front sides and place both front jack stands under at the same time. i can do it the way recommended by the owner's manual but i found the new way more convenient and simpler. i just do not know the exact point at which to place the jack under the front center of the car.

he jacked it up from the front crossmember apparently. it's under the engine, big, heavy piece of metal bolted up under there. check for yourself and you'll find it.

But if he was doing your springs, he picked up the whole car on a lift, then used a small jack to compress the spring(s) so he could take them off
