View Full Version : jacking my whole car off the ground?

Hello. Would it possible, and not harm my Abarth, to use (4) jack stands and jack up the entire car off the ground? Are there jack points on the front of the vehicle as well as the rear?

thank you!

Main problem is the limited space available. You get the jack in there and have little room to place stands. Some have used the front/rear rather than the designated side areas but it almost always comes down to the comfort level of the individual owner.

Per the manual the proper information is shown here in a pic I posted previously. You'll see and feel the small triangles on the side skirts. http://www.fiat500usaforum.com/showthread.php?7599-Dealer-doesn-t-know-how-to-hoist-FIAT&p=582103&viewfull=1#post582103
