Default Help! - jack points?

I can't seem to find an obvious jack point for the front end. It doesn't seem to outline this in the manual. Can someone help please? I'm in the middle of putting on my new wheels. Rears are easy - just can't seem to find an obviously solid place to set the jack in front..

thanks!

You can use the crossmember right under the engine. Do a search, I would bet you would even get pictures...

Up by the front edge of the sideskirt there is a ~1.5" gap of plastic that is just plain black metal.... That is where you put the jack I think.

if you are using a floor jack and jackstands, there are many other points to be aware of when jacking.

In the front, you can jack it by the 4"x7" metal plate that covers the front swaybar. Use a piece of wood to protect the metal from denting with the jack head. The jackstands can go in many places, but I've successfully used the spot right behind the tire where you're supposed to put the factory scissor jack (described above) and I've also put jackstands on the large u-shaped black metal crossmember that wraps around a large portion of the front end underneath.

In the rear, you can jack it by the rear differential. Use a block of wood to protect the diff from damage. you can put jackstands just in front of the tires in the the factory scissorjack spot.
