Lifting Point Diagram

Some of you may have noticed that the links in the HOW TO on this subject a broken (it links to an external site I think) as you can see here:
http://www.teamfocus.us/jacking.htm
http://www.teamfocus.us/lifting.htm

So that we still have that information in the interim (as the MODS see fit) - here is the Lifting Point the diagram and text from the Ford Manual:

Lifting Points

CAUTION: The vehicle must not be lifted on the outer rocker panel.

CAUTION: It is not recommended that the vehicle is jacked or lifted on the rear suspension crossmember. If the vehicle must be lifted on the crossmember, make sure that the jack or lift is positioned centrally. Failure to follow these instructions will result in deformation of the closing plate which will weaken the crossmember.

NOTE: When lifting a vehicle with a two-post lift, vehicle levelling pads must be used under the lifting points.

It is important that only the correct lifting and support locations are used at all times.
