I can figure out how to get the rear wheels off of the ground, but has anyone found a good and easy way to get the a wheel up to say, work on the brakes? With the coolant tubes it is important to be in the right spot. I wouldn't be against making some sort of a "jacking plate" or something to make the job easier (and safer). Anyone care to share any experiences? Thanks. Bob

In lu of a pic, if I want both off the ground I lift in the middle of the engine cradle right below the muffler. If just one side I lift on the cradle where the swing arm connects to the cradle. You can basically lift anywhere on the cradle as it is strong enough to lift the car. I stay off the body itself.

I just want to be sure about this because I really don't want to crush the coolant tubes. So please indulge the following questions. Is the bracket (pointed to in the pix) running over those tubes an OK front jacking point? Will the bracket really handle the weight of the whole front end up?
