Re: 200q supporting with floor jacks
As per the Bentley, the rubber pads are the jacking points for floor
jacks and hydraulic lift arms. I use a piece of 2x4 in the cup of my floor
jack to make sure the edges of the lift cup don't contact the body when the
rubber pad compresses.
I usually put the jack stands under the lift points for the OEM jack on
the body sills, but have also used suitable suspension mounting points upon
'91 200q 281k km
