Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

Here are proper places to lift your Crown Victoria or Grand Marquis. This is a full frame car. So you can see the frame. Come under here, this is a whole frame, solid throughout the car. If you're just looking to lift one wheel off the ground, you'd want to lift in this area of the frame in the front. This is the front passenger side. Rear passenger side. This area of the frame here, where it kind of bows in before the wheels. Same thing on the other sides.

If you want to lift both wheels off the ground in the back, you can lift right under here. You don't want the jack to contact your cover here, your rear end cover, but you can lift it right in here. And then once you lift it there, then you'd put the jack stands, again, right at the large areas before, in front of the wheels.

If you want to lift both front wheels off the ground, you can lift it right here. Not the engine, up here, but this part of the frame rail where these braces come in. You place the jack right under here, lift up the car, and then again, place jack stands on each side.
