    Where Is The Best Place To Jack Up The Front???

    This may be a rediculous question but where is the best location to jack up the front of the car on a 98 z28? Would it be ok to place the jack under the a arm under the front spring?I just want to make sure I dont mess anything up cause this is the best car I ever had. Thank you.

    depends on what your trying to achieve...


    alot of jacks wont fit under the K-member
    ... i solve that by driving on 1/2" pieces of wood to get the clearance

    if your just swapping a tire or getting under for an oil change... im lazy & jack it up from under the driver side (pass side too) where lifts would pick the car up from (right next to where the fenders bolt on underneith... be sure NOT to go near them... they WILL rip out its a fairly long flat spot thats pretty stirdy

    i always put some thick rags on the jack to help with marks... some people use wood but i dont trust the possibility of slipping

    or you can buy jacking pucks ($30-$75 for the set... but if your that anal its worth it) < which i wouldnt blame you if you were

    hope this helps

    How about putting the hydrolic floor jack under the a-arm directly under where the spring sits on it??? Would that be ok?
