I have been doing two things:
a. Lifting via the front subframe (Placing the floor jack slightly
toward the drivers side) Make sure that the floor jack plate is
on the subframe NOT interfering with the sump :-)) The subframe
has previous dents from this kind of abuse.
b. Lifting using the floor jack on the slotted points:
Where X represents the rubber blocks and - the slotted points. If I
place the floor jack on an angle away from the wheel I get enough
clearance to place a jackstand under the rubber block:
/ <- This is the floor jack
I also received word from another lister (sorry don't remember the
name) who uses the front and rear subframes, I have not tried this
yet. Given the rear subframe is where the tow bar attaches I suspect
it is quite strong.
