Silly Question

Hey guys, I have a silly question, but wanted to ask to make sure I don't damage anything. Where (physically underneath on the chassis) should I jack up the car to paint the calipers? I want to lift the front of the car off the ground only.

There kind of hard to see but there are arrows on the jack points, get under with a flash light.

I can't squeeze underneath the car to get a clear view. The manual isn't very helpful! Click image for larger version

This little guy? If so, I'm not sure if I'd feel comfortable using a floor jack or stands on a seam like that.

That's the place you want to jack the car from.

How about this:

Steeda S550 Mustang Ultra Lite Chassis Jacking Rails (15-16 All) | 555-5205 | Free Shipping!



Product Benefits
40% lighter than the competition, only 14 lbs
Allows you to jack up your S550 anywhere along the jacking rail, preventing damage to your factory pinch welds
Open mounting bracket design prevents water from getting trapped and therefore eliminating chances of rust
Will work with Steeda's popular IRS Subframe Support Braces
Includes all necessary mounting hardware unlike the competition
Lifetime warranty
Made in the USA using high-grade materials

Never have to worry about where to jack it up in the future

Best Regards,

TJ

I understand companies making a post about a new product but answering a question like this with " hey look at this product" (that doesn't answer the question being asked) shouldn't be allowed.

You have to lift at the designated area of the pinch weld consult the owners manual

Thanks everyone. I called Ford who stated I could use the k-brace joint to jack the vehicle and the weld seam for the jack stands. Painted my calipers all night and will post pics later today when I'm able to remount the wheels.
