Under the car on the drivers side, right in front of the that wheel.

Now, we'll wait for the rear answer. You have no car manual? I know mine says where to put it.

There'* a little cut out in four spots around the car. The front ones are behind below the rocker panel and the rear ones are in front of the wheels under the rocker panel. They're meant for bottle jacks though, never used the 3 ton on them.

So what you're sayin is to not use a car lift because they use lift points like a 3 ton jack does?
