any tips on lifting and jack points?

Recommended Posts

i would like to have either ends of my C2 in the air at the same time or even the whole car up at once. where can i safely use jackstands on a C2? not looking for lift points (at the 4 corners by the wheels) but jack stand points.

can i use the cross member (#19) in the rear?

The easiest thing to do is to place the jack stands at the factory lift points. For example if you want the front end lifted do the following....use your floor jack at the rear factory lift point on one side (just in front of rear wheel well), lifting the car high enough so that a jack stand can be placed under the front lift point (the chassis is stiff enough to easily do this)...then lower. Repeat this on the other side. This will result in having the entire front end supported by the jack stands. All four corners can be lifted by placing the floor jack under the engine casing and lifting the rear after placing the front on jack stands. Then place the jack stands for the rear under the rear lifting points. Care must be taken when doing this that the car does not go forward and fall off the front jack stands. Does this make sense? I am sure someone has some pictures of this procedure. If not the procedures is outlined and pictured for a 993 at www.p-car.com under the DIY section.

The procedure that "bet" explained is exactly what the factory recommends and indeed uses for their Cup-cars.

For the front, they do not recommend using the sub-frame #20 to jack up the car. Besides, it's covered by a plastic panel, so you'd have to remove that first. (IMHO if you absolutely must, use the jack at the point where the sub-frame is bolted to the chassis, but that would obviously be off-centre.)

For the rear, the preferred point is the oil pan, but use a piece of wood between the jack and the oil pan. The factory recons that you could probably use the cross-member #20 at the rear, but the oil pan is preferable.
