    Hey guys, I need your help. I feel safer using the jacking point in front of the rear wheels to sit my jack stands on. Am I safe to jack my 2002 VX Commodore up from underneath the diff? I'd really like to hear what you pros all think, thank you for all your information and as always have a great day

    Under the center of the diff is a safe location, I use a big trolley jack and pad the lifting point well.
    With my stands having a V type point where the top comes in contact with the car I place them under the control arms.

    I would say the same,
    But I have cut out 4 pieces of rubber padding from off cuts of like a chequered Plate design Rubber mat, and silicone them together, for a soft contact point, so not to damage the cars paint protection under the body,
    Bit of over kill, but everyone to their own I guess :D
