Howdy!

Wanting to change the diff oil in my BA XR6, which might be a problem in itself, but anyway, I went to jack it up, there was a flat bit of metal from what looked like the subframe, looked perfect.

Although when i went to jack it up I noticed the metal beginning to get pitted from the jack arm so I let it back down again.

I'm going to check the manual for the proper jack points but I can't imagine slightly denting that bit of metal will cause any problems?

I should have checked the manual first :/

Yeah I looked like a good place to jack lol, I don't think it will cause issues though :) just a light dent!

I used the normal jacking point but then there's no where to put a damn stand!
I don't know what I'm going to do lol.

I didn't think it would be this damn hard
