Hi Folks,

I need to put my 2017 Volvo S60 in storage for several months and wanted to jack it and put it on jack stands. The volvo manual is clear on front end placement but has nothing for the rear. Any thoughts on where to place the rear jack stands so as to not cause any damage?

The manual has you lift the back corner via the pinch weld under the back door by the tire. This is the only place they show for lifting. There is a pinch weld area about 4 inches forward of this, but the manual shows a red X on the graphic to not use it. Curious.....

I have a '91 240 wagon and am looking for advice on jacking up the rear end. I know there are posts in front of the rear wheels where the standard jack is supposed to go to raise the vehicle, but I figured on using them for my jackstands as they fit so well. I have been told that jacking up on the rear differential is both a great and horrible thing to do. jiofi local html

      I have never liked the OEM jack for my 1998 V70, too wobbly and unsteady on anything but perfectly flat asphalt. I'd like to puchase a more stable scissor-type jack, that can still be hidden away with the doughnut.

      Anybody have experience using an older OEM 940 jack with newer models?

      I am rebuilding my front end. New control arms, CJ's delrin subframe bushings, Koni oranges, IPD springs and anti-sways and various associated hardware.

      I found this thread ( and it shows them on a reinforced patch behind the subframe brackets. However, I do not see a reinforced patch behind my brackets. Mine do not curve up like in the pictures and appear to be pushing in as I lower the car on the stands, so I stopped.

      Anyone who has done this on their C70 can tell me for sure? I have the car jacked up now...
