    Frame Hoist or Four Post Lift
    Hoisting the car on four post lift or resting the Axel stands.
    • Position the hoist lift blocks (A), on safety stands, under the vehicle's front support points (B) and rear support points (C).

    • Raise the hoist a few inches, and rock the vehicle gently to be sure it is firmly supported.
    • Raise the hoist to full height, and inspect the lift points for solid contact with the lift blocks.
    NOTE: If you are going to remove heavy components such as suspension or the fuel tank from the rear of the vehicle, first support the front of the vehicle with tall safety stands. When substantial weight is removed from the rear of the vehicle, the center of gravity can change and cause the vehicle to tip forward on the hoist.

    High Lift Floor Jack

    • When lifting the front of the vehicle, set the parking brake. When lifting the rear of the vehicle, put the gearshift lever in neutral.
    • Block the wheels that are not being lifted.
    • Position the floor jack under the front jacking bracket (A) or rear jacking bracket (B), center the jacking bracket in the jack lift platform (C), and jack up the vehicle high enough to fit the safety stands under it.

    • Lower the vehicle onto the stands.
