I wouldn't give it that much effort. Before I even came in for my tire change I explained to the guys that it wouldn't go on a lift and required a padded, low-profile jack that had to be used at a certain point on the car and they were cool with that. I even brought in my jack just in case and pointed out where to lift and gave them the owner's manual for reference. They were done in about an hour or so with no issues. ..........
Warning, obtuse question coming:
I am about to take my car into an alignment shop for a Tirerack-drop and install of some new Toyos. This is going to be a (lesser than) jacking 101 question, but the Owners manuel indicates: (point) A Identified by a blue sticker
. My stickers seem to have washed off.... is this circle (yes, with a little blue outline) the proper spot? I would rather ask the question now than look back wistfully later. So should I suggest the shop use a padded jack which fits within this circle and that they take great care NOT to make contact with the outside edges?
I am looking to inform the tire-guys EXACTLY what they need and Where to jack.
