Just to double check, I plan on puting my 996 on jack stands and using the rear cross member to raise the car while I place the stands under the jack points. Any problems using the rear cross member or any cautions?

Thank you

Whenever I jack up my 996TT I use the jack points and only the jack points for safety.

I have also used a jack under the engine but just for a couple seconds when I needed to get the rear of the car up a couple inches for 5 seconds (to get it on my buddy's lift for example). But I would never jack up the car and be underneath it or have it jacked that high unless it was using the jack points and it was extremely stable. You can read stories about people's engine mounts going out when the person jacks up the car using the engine, etc. It can be quite dangerous.

See http://www.renntech....stand-placement. There is some controversy over using the engine case to jack the rear. After I jack each side from the rear jack point, I put stands in the front and tire ramps under the rear tires. This gives me plenty of clearance to reach the suspension cross member (Bentley manual recommended jack point) with the jack from the rear. Then, I can insert the rear jack stands under the rear jack points, and remove the ramps, if necessary. It doesn't take any longer with the ramps, which I got on sale for $40.
