How to Jack Up Your CR-Z and Support on Jack Stands

I have found jack points in several different threads, but not one thread dedicated to lifting the CR-Z for placement on Jack Stands. One should note that this is on a CR-Z with stock suspension, so here it is....

I start with the single lift point from the rear using the tow hook....



Now you can place the two jack stands at the rear reinforcement points just ahead of the rear wheels....



Here is a detail of jack stand placement at the reinforced factory scissor jack location for the rear stands....



Next, roll the jack up under the front section from behind the rear wheel locating the plate in the center of the vehicle at the rear of the engine cradle...



Here is where you place the jack pad for the single lift point for the front. Lifting at this point will necessitate short strokes on the jack as so much of the handle is up under the vehicle, but with each successful short stroke, the next increases just a bit until you are high enough to place the two front stands...



Now your ready to place the front jack stands.....



Here is a detail of jack stand placement at the reinforced factory scissor jack location for the front stands. Note to be sure to place the stands clear of the small piece of metal in order not to crush it....



Now your set and your CR-Z is up on all four jack stands!



Removal from the jack stands is of course just reversing the procedure.

Hey the 70's called and they want their jack stands back...

Seriously though, unless you are fine with metal-on-metal contact at the jack points, I would try to get a flat top jack stand. The ones that I use are these:

A hockey puck on top of each stand works great, so I'd get a bunch of those too...

Thanks for the write up. I know this is a simple thing that most of us know about, but it tends to be something that newbies ask a lot. I'm going to sticky this.

I have always wondered how I would get it on 4 jacks!

What about people with a rear tow hook? Gotta take it off, eh?
