I have looked up the jacking points on the forum, on the 300CSRT. The last information on this was posted in April and June. Anyone else have better information on this? I see a round area ahead of the rear wheels on the side of the frame, but see no spot to use a floor jack on the front. I need to lift up the front so I can try and repair the front valence, which was damaged on a curb. This is my second hit of a curb. Double shucks! Buzzard

Hi buzzard. There's a massive beam-looking assembly that runs transversely side to side slightly forward of the trailing edge of the front tires. She's easy to spot from *behind* the wheel. Suggest you act as spotter and have someone else ease the *fully lowered* floor jack back to that beam, and engage it about 12 inches inboard of each wheel, in turn. When done that way nothing moves that shouldn't when jacking the car.

Jackstands engage the inner longitudinal rail just aft of the rear of the front tires (you'll see the spot--it narrows to just less than the width of the typical jack stand receiver.

Thanks, I'm going out now and look it over. Am I correct in jacking the rear on the round points in front of the rear tires, close to the outside edge of the car?

I went out and found the triangles on the frame. Thanks for you help Meister

Haven't had the pleasure of lifting her back end yet, buzzard, but will be doing so when the Magnaflows arrive. I just checked my car (but not the manual-yet-so be sure to check it before going much further) and I would *not* go with those round points you mention--they don't appear to me to be steel.

I'd jack it on the steel *oval* hole approx. 4" aft and slightly inboard of the extended hole you're referring to (unless the manual convinced me otherwise); it appears to be an ideal lift point.

more jack info

Meister, search jacking points, and you will see the diagram showing the rear hard rubber cicles I am referring to when you down load from one of the thread. Shows all the different points, and an exclamation. There is nothing in the SRT-8 owners book, sincw there is no tire or jack.

I bent my front rails a bit lifting the car with 3 wheels off the ground to slide a jack stand under. A length of 2x4 would go a long way in distributing the force, not needed if servicing only one wheel. If you are going to jack the front using the cross member (which is not a listed jack point btw) use some wood for distribution and place on jack stands at the proper jack points. This was the technique I used jacking my Citroen CX (the most beautiful car in the world)

Here's a diagram from an earlier thread some time ago...hopefully it's helpful. :fing02:

Thanks much, buzzard. When all else fails go to the tech data. :)

And thanks to kings & Mr.DJ for also sharing their knowledge & data.

ghbbuzzard...

did you do it yet?
if you are jacking the fronts...
look at my post in the exterior upgrades section on Hoen Fog Lights upgrade....
I kinda of went into detail on it...
I have a ton of pictures...
but can't get them past my filter at work...
get on the ground...
look from behind the wheel while you lay about where the front door hinges...
you'll see a silver heat shield about 2-3 inches wide and 4-6 inches long...
the jack point for the cross member section is right there...
it is tight...
I was just able to get my small jack under it...
once you get it lifted turn the wheels so you can get access to the front valence...
there is some other posts about the screws and stuff that might help as well...
good luck!!!
