It looks like what you have to do is lift(using a floor jack) from the pinch welds as indicated from the rocker panels and then slot the jacks under the circular points on the unibody.

Corvette pucks might be a suitable replacement for the stands, just wondering if anyone here has found a better solution. for the stands and what you use to jack on the pinchwelds.

thinking about picking up some of the corvette pucks form amazon and these

need to measure the pinch area to make sure they'll fit through.

Why are you asking?

the area of the jacking point is odd in this car, it's at a slight angle, so you can't plant it on a level surface.

I ended up cutting up some wood, but it certainly didn't look safe.

Glad you cleared that up. I was wondering why you were asking why he was asking.

I put span a 2X6 under the car where those two holes are, the ones near the front pinch point(factory hoist holes) and put a jack under the wood, have lifted the car numerous times with no issue

Sure, but where do you place your stand after that?

I had to lift from the pinch and put the stand where the holes are supported by a block of wood.

This was my crude prototype to fit the seam/pocket area. I'm planning to build an aluminum version when my machinist gets back from vacation. I left the seam groove a little wider than needed because I plan to lay tooling urethane into it to protect the seam from localized damage. Bert

Ooooh! I smell a group buy coming.
Kidding. Bert

I asked Cadillac Customer Assistance for jacking point info. This was their response, poor grammar and all.

"Front of vehicle:
Place service jack pad on the lift pad located right next behind the left and right wheels or on the front center jack pad which is located at the front-center of the vehicle where two arms are connected.

Rear of vehicle:
Place the service jack pad on the lift pad located right next front the right and left wheel."

Huh? Well, that's what they wrote. Cheers. Bert

They almost certainly hired the guy who writes the manuals for Chinese products.
