Title: Jack points
Post by: corradocaddy on Aug 10, 18, 02:00
My caddys jack points are really weak and I usually jack it up from the control arm. But now I'm replacing the control arms. Any suggestions of other good jack points?

I've always used the factory front jack point on my cars and never had any issues, just use a soft pad on your jack.
Is yours rotted out?
For the rear I go straight to the rear beam(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180810/b45f5e63296b3e57f0b7f9f3baeeafa5.jpg)

Yeah. The passenger side is rotated pretty bad. And I don't trust the driver side

Jack it up by the control arm by the mount as you have been.  Should be just fine

If your pinch rails are bad too, I would get a 2x4 or other piece of flat wood and jack up underneath the tranny.
