Sky lift points

We just picked up our Sky Redline on Monday after waiting for almost 9 months. Driving it home on a wet messy road we realized that we need to install splash guards. Since I have to remove the wheels to install them, I would like to know if anyone knows where the lift points are located under the car? The owners manual says nothing about them since the car does not come with a jack. Thanks.

Or no need to remove any wheels IF you have the proper tools. One being a what I would call a ratchet philips head screw driver for the rear wheels mainly--I did not remove any wheels when I installed my set--

I agree, it took me less than a hour and no need to remove the wheels.

I think there are special "lift pucks" now available for the Solstice/SKY so they have a pad to lift on the rear of the car (goes in the shipping hole). The front lift location is either CAREFULLY on the shipping hole area (WITHOUT CRUSHING THE ROCKER) or just inside the front wheel.

I'd recommend these three points for jacking - use a flat surface, and on the rails take care and do NOT crush the outer sheet metal.

You can prolly also safely jack on the front cross beam, but be very careful not to jack on the steering gear or stabilizer bars.
