    I not sure but I think that was already there. Doesn't look horrible but something to keep an eye out. i'm sure some of the more experienced guys will have more input about.

    I agree that it looks pre-existing.

    also, just a tip to help you out....if you copy and paste the IMG code from photobucket the pics will appear in the thread rather than having to click each one to view it

    The k-member is a fairly rugged piece. I don't think you'll do any further harm jacking it from there.

    You're good.. Imho maybe the previous owner got stuck and used the hole to hook the chain/cable to.. That area is designed to take a beating.. No worries.

    yeah that doesnt look from you jacking the car up. If the car run fine and is not out of alignment or stuff like that i will leave it alone. trying to get that fix can cause more trouble.

    I just jack the car from the drivers side by the chassis area and that gives me enough clearance to put a jack stand (for safety ) and to change my oil.

    the only thing now is that i put my 2 point SFC and Im not sure if I can use that area anymore.

    That is a tooling relief hole, and the piece is stamped out of heavy guage steel @ tens of thousands of psi. Rest assured your cars weight in concert with jacking is'nt enough to damage it..
