Default Front jack location

I know where to jack the car up to change the tire. It shows it in the haynes manual. My question is this: is there a place in the front that i should use to jack the car up so i can get jack stands under both sides of the car at once?

Default Re: Front jack location

Looks like there might be a brace around where the center Number 7 circle is that would be strong enough to get the whole front up so you could slide stands on the side. IF you can get the jack far enough under there. Personally, I'd just pick up another jack if your doing your own work and going to be jacking the car up a number of times.

Question Re: Front jack location

Why not just jack up one side at a time?......<Just curious>;I mean I might could understand,if your using the little scissor-jack that comes with the PT,but if you have jack stands I'm willing to guess you have a bottle jack,or even a floor jack,and if you don't....Floor jacks aren't really that expensive......I bought my 2 ton Craftsman floor jack on sale for $29.95.
