safely lifting a Forrester with a floor jack?
Posted 08 April 2004 - 04:16 PM
I plan to do my first tire rotation on a Forrester. rather than lifting one wheel at a time with the scissor jack, I would like to lift the entire front (or rear) axle using a floor jack, place the jackstands and remove both tires.
Question: where (under which part of the Forrester) should I place the jack head? what is the safest/stronger part of the car which I can access for lifting purposes? I am looking for a frame element along the centerline, of course, since the standard lips near the wheel will only allow lifting off the pavement one tire at a time.
Thank you for any suggestion/tip/hint.

I thought the Forester had a real spare. If so, just jack up one corner, install the spare, move to the next corner and put on the tire you just removed, etc. That’s part of the beauty of a full size spare.
