When jacking up the front of the car using a floor jack always use the front crossmember as the contact point, never a suspension or steering part and never the engine oil pan. Always block the rear of the back wheels, and always use a block of wood between the saddle of the jack and the crossmember.
When jacking up the rear of the car using a floor jack, place blocks in front of the front wheels and always place the jack in contact with the center of the rear crossmember. On four wheel drive models contact the bottom of the rear differential carrier.
Always jack slowly until the car is high enough to place the safety stands in their proper positions. The safety stands should be placed in the same location points as shown for the scissors type jack. Make sure the stands are set on the flange of the side sill.
