oil change link please!

hi folks,

I have searched everywhere on the forum.

I remember someone had pictures of the jacking and stand points to use for getting the left side of the car in the air to change the oil.

would someone mind pointing me to it?

thanks so much!

Jeff

thanks, my concern is there are specific points under the chassis to place the jack stands, and I can't remember where they were.

A lot of us just drive up on stacked 2x10s.

I've actually done it without any raising of the car. Not so sure about my blood pressure. But it is not THAT difficult.

Are they low enuf to fit under the sides so you could drive up on four Rhinos?

thanks!

Rhino

Rhino Ramps for me. Its really a pretty simple oil change. No matter how you change oil in any car no way to get all the oil out...
