Hey guys, i'm trying to take off all four wheels for a paint job (b5 rs4 wheels). I have four jack stand and a racing jack, the problem is when I jack up the car on the front I can't find a place to put the jack. I don't have much problem with the rear because when i jack up the front the rear goes up too xD! Can someone help me out how I can accomplish this? Also are there any center jack points? Pics would say a thousand things so please include! Thanks guys i'll post some pics up when i'm done!

Can't vouch for it though. I came across it a few months ago and bookmarked it in case I never needed it.

Jack under the subframe up front in the middle, place the stands either on the subframe rails on each side between the lower CAs or otherwise the factory jack points (watch out if the "teeth" of the stands stick up a bit) Then for the rear, either jack up under the factory tow hook, or else under the rear diff and place the stands either in the factory jack locations or else under the subframe. IIRC, there's a good spot in front of the wheels where it bolts to the unibody.

I can, it works for me, just be careful getting it up. You need to make sure the jacks dont tip.

Did this with my part out car... Works for me. But like Cgoon said just be careful when jacking it up that you don't tip the jacks over.

I use a wood prop and lift one side of the car at a time. I place it on a hydraulic jack and lift by the frame. Then place jack stands on the pinch welds. After that, I do the other side. Pic for reference.

I did this for demonstration purposes, but you would ideally want the wood pop to be flush with the frame. In the pic it is not, but I made this pic for another forum member asking about it.
