Just put the jack in the middle of the frame and jack up one side at a time. Make sure this is a real floor jack and not the one included with the vehicle as it's not designed for this.

If you want to jack up the entire rear, just put the floor jack under the differential/pumpkin.

As for the front, you'd have to remove the skid plates and jack it up by the cross-member under them.
--------- Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How to replace rack and pinion 2004 gmc envoy


Jack stands are always a good idea when working under a vehicle. I would place them on the frame in a location that will not be in the way as you move about under the vehicle. Also, if you are only lifting the front end, make sure the vehicle is on a solid, level surface and chock the rear wheels. Nothing will ruin your day quicker than having a car dropped on your chest!!

The easiest way to remove a fuel pump off a camaro


Hello,

Drive the rear of the Camaro onto a set of ramps and secure the parking brake. If the Camaro no longer runs due to the fuel pump, place the rear end of the vehicle onto jack stands.

Use a socket and ratchet to disconnect the negative battery cable from the negative battery terminal. This removes power from the electric fuel pump.

Place a jack under the gas tank and raise the jack so it butts up against the tank. This applies pressure to the tank and prevents it from falling while you remove the retaining bolts for the tank straps.

Use a socket and ratchet to remove the retaining bolt from each of the two straps located closest to the rear of the vehicle. These are the rear strap bolts. Pull the straps down.

Lower the jack to lower the tank from the vehicle. Because you left the front of the straps attached, the tank rests at an angle under the vehicle. This prevents the need to unhook all of the hoses connected to the tank.

Place the cam tool (J-24187) onto the retaining cam on the top of the tank and turn it a quarter turn counterclockwise. Take the sending unit cam off the tank.

Disconnect the fuel pump from the sending unit cam and plug the new pump into the sending unit.

Place the fuel sending unit cam onto the tank and turn it clockwise a quarter turn with the specialized tool.

Use the straps, bolts, socket and ratchet to jack the tank back up under the Camaro and secure it.

Use the socket and ratchet to reconnect the negative battery cable to the negative battery terminal.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

Jacking points on all Jeep vehicles



c17hydro_1.gif

Your Jeep was supplied with a jack for emergency road repairs. This jack is fine for changing a flat tire or other short-term procedures not requiring you to go beneath the vehicle. Do not attempt to use the jack on any portions of the vehicle other than specified by the vehicle manufacturer. Always block the diagonally opposite wheel when using a jack.

Supporting the front of the vehicle with jack stands placed under each frame rail


A more convenient way of jacking is the use of a garage or floor jack. You may use the floor jack at the specified points in following the illustrations.

Never place the jack under the radiator, engine or transmission components. Severe and expensive damage will result when the jack is raised. Additionally, never jack under the floorpan or bodywork; the metal will deform

Instructions for replacing shocks & struts


Ok first off if the vehicle is equipped with air ride you need to turn the air ride off or you will blow out the rear bags when the rear is off the ground.

For the front Remove the wheel. Take off the upper shock nut. Now remover the two lower retaining nuts. Compress the shock and pull it out. Install in reverse order. Before installing the new shock push the piston completely down and allow it to return. Do this 2 to 3 times.

For the rear remove the wheel support the rear end with jack stands at the jack points. Now use your jack (not a scissor jack) and place it under the rear diff to support the rear diff. If you have another set of jack stands use them and support the rear axle as it sits.

Remove the lower shock bolt. Now remove the two upper shock bolts and the shock will come right out.

How to replace the oil filter on 1999 sunfire , the oil filter is surrouded by many things and we can not get to it. Is there a easier way?

  1. Place one wheel chock in front of each of the Sunfire's front tires. Lift the rear of the Sunfire with a floor jack. Then support the weight of the vehicle with one jack stand placed under each rear axle.
  2. Locate the fuel filter. The fuel filter is a metal cylindrical piece located underneath the Sunfire on the passenger's side of the fuel tank.
  3. Note that one end of the fuel filter has a nut, while the other end has a clip. Use a wrench to remove the portion of the fuel line which enters the side of the fuel filter which has the nut.
  4. Allow any fuel which is present in the line to drain into a bucket. Use a tool for quick connect fittings to release the clip on the opposite side of the fuel filter. The quick connect fitting tool is readily available at most auto parts stores, and can sometimes be rented instead of purchased. Once the fitting is released, pull the fuel line away from the filter.
  5. Press the end of the new fuel filter that has the clip onto the fuel line until the line clicks into place. Then use a wrench to tighten the end of the other fuel line to the fuel filter.
  6. Raise the back of the Sunfire with the floor jack. Remove the jack stands from underneath the axles. Then lower the Sunfire with the floor jack and remove the wheel chocks to complete the installation.

Jack up the vehicle from a safe secure position, check your owners manual if needed. Loosen both wheels before jacking the vehicle off the ground.Do not remove the wheel lug nuts, just loos en them. Jack the rear of the vehicle up so the tires are not touching the ground.Place a jack stand on the left side and right side of the vehicle, then lower the vehicle down on the jack stands before removing the wheels or getting under the vehicle, keeping the jack in place for extra protection. Remove both both wheels, butONLY REMOVE THE ONE SIDE OF THE BRAKE ASSEMBLY AT A TIME, YOU WILL USE THE OTHER SIDE AS A REFERENCE SO YOU KNOW HOW TO PUT IT BACK TOGETHER.
