Alternate Jack Point

My new used Boxster has a pretty bad case of wheel rash on the right rear. I contacted Wheel Collision Center in PA and they can fix it. So now I'm thinking I have to get that wheel off and shipped out.

I know about the jack points shown in the owner's manual, but once I have it jacked I need to place a jackstand. Does anyone have a tried and true suggestion for the second jack point? For future reference, any suggestions for the front as well?

Thanks in advance.

I take it you will not be driving the car while your wheel is being refinished. Just put on the spare?

These are the places I use for a jack stand.

Rear.



Front.

i placed mine just next to the brake disc....

After speaking to a porsche rep its the best place the boxster can hold on the brake disc. But you might as wheel put the red spare wheel on.

I had all my wheels off while getting new tyres

Tool pants, is there anything about boxsters that you don't know? I don't think there is.
