Thanks! Yeah, I saw the picture in post #57. Really just wanted to make sure you or anyone else hadn't seen anything bad happen with that method in the last 6+ months. Appreciate the confirmation!Welcome to the forum and good choice in vehicle !
I myself am not a wagoneer, so I got the FWD Sedan. great cars all around.
Question 1.... I use the front cradle subframe cross member to jack the whole front in one go. My post # 57, I show a pic of my FWD Regal, and you can see it's not like your tourX as in it doesn't have a plastic cover under the pan and the cross memeber frame is right in the open right in front of the exhaust downpipe.
Question 2... Hope someone with a TourX can give you a better idea.
Question 3... Do NOT jack up by the Rear Differential !!! It will leak 100%... I Always jack up old trucks by the rear diff, but always use a 2" thick rubber pad between the jack and diff,.. but unfortunately this is not a good idea with modern cars.
When I do anything that requires me to take off the rear tires, be it rotate or change etc.. The only spot that's ideal is on the frame in front of each rear tire, a few inches in. Gonna have to jack each rear side separately. You'll see the spot, for it's the only good spot I could find.
So if I wanted to jack the whole thing up, I guess it would be best to do both rear corners first, then the front altogether with the crossmember after removing the under panel?
