but is the actual lift point ON the edge of the pinch weld or at the 'top' of the surface where the vertical surface meets the rocker panel and floor?

I've looked at the posted PDF and have seen the molded in 'arrows' but just do not know where to put the lift pad on the front...

i've got a bend-pak two post but I just can't figure it out... and when i roll under, i see 'better' places to lift at the front end.. (i think)
I'd still like to see some images of a set-up on lift with these lift points....
just a visual person i guess

Re: Lift Points and Bracket Damage

I don't suppose anyone has access to the Factory Service Manual and knows the torque specs for bolts 2 and 5 in the attached image of the front suspension cradle?

After an interesting interaction, the dealer has agreed to replace the bent cross member brackets, but since it looks like bolts 2 attach the suspension cradle to the frame, I want to be able to double check the torque values.

Thanks in advance for any guidance.
