    Third Gen Jacking Point

    My front passenger side jack point is not in the condition to be used on my 86 Z28, as its badly rusted, bent over, and twisted, and I don't want it to fail and have my exhaust pipe crushed and my body panels torn up, or worse. What other places can I jack up the car enough to change the front passenger tire?

    Thanks in advance, I don't want to be driving on the spare (which is on right now) to much either, its not in very good condition itself...

    If it is that badly rusted, Get Rid of The Car! That section of the unitized body is where all of its strength comes from. If you were to get into an accident,(especially front end) , you had better get your feet out of there!

    Thanks, I was going to try that but the jack that came with the car wouldn't be able to be jacked that far under... looks like I'll be buying another one of the real jacks.

    Believe me, I want to get rid of it. Thankfully I will be able to in about 5 weeks.

    It sucks that it is in such bad shape. The Iroc is one of my favorite Camaros!

    yeah... mine lived up north (pennsylvania) until the late 90's... so the rust can be expected...
