Default Front Jack Location

Just replaced my 2 front tires. Is it ok to jack the front of my CRV at this location? It lifts both front tires when done this way.

I prefer having two hydraulic jacks and doing it from each side. Neighbor has one, I have one, so I've got two to my disposal.

There is a center jack point up front on the 1998 - 2001 CR-Vs. I have the optional skid plate, so I've never used it. You should be safe though. I believe Liquidfuel88 has used it successfully in the past.

The illustration for the front lift point is about right, but the rear shows the lift point as the rear tie down. On the CRV the rear lift point is on the bottom of the differential cradle. This thread has the pic from the service manual showing the front and rear lift points.

Image posted by Ragnarok:




Even that pic is misleading. The circle is centered over the tie down loop, but the lift point is under the cradle for the rear differential (the "pumpkin").

You can do it if you have a serious jack like the one in the diagram, but not with your HONDA jack. You'll be lifting more than 1/2 of the weight of the whole CR-V, and it certainly isn't strong or stable enough for that.

If I am working on the vehicle with the wheels off, I usually jack it from the center cross member and then place jack stands under the standard lift points and lower the vehicle on the jack stands.

To lift the rear, I jack it up as the frame right under the rear differential, and place jack stands under standard lifting locations.

No, you can not do this with the supplied jack, since:

a) there is no way to turn it under the vehicle.

b) it is not rated to lift 1/2 of the vehicle's weight, it is only rated for 1/4 of the vehicle weight.

The reason I posted this question was because this was the location used to raise the front of the car to replace the 2 front tires.....
