Hmm well my car is so low it works our perfect, I have to use 2 jacks to get it up haha. I have to use a low profile jack just to raise it a lil bit, so I use low prof jack on pinch point. I use that to lift the car up a bit, take my big Craftsman jack, and I put that so that it cuts the front subframe, where the lower control arm bolts in. Take out the low prof, go to the other lift point. Begin jacking pu the Craftsman up a bit, raise the low prof up a bit to ehelp keep the ca kinda even, raise the Craftsman the rest, put the jackstand on that sides pinch point. Move the Craftsman to the other subframe spot, jack it up so it is off the low prof, put jackstand there. All that just to raise my car up, lowered cars are awesome lol. To lower it is just as much fun, since I can't put the car all the way down on the Craftsman haha. Good story huh.

Awesome, thank you (and everyone else that responded). Just wanted to be sure that's not the bottom of a radiator support or something like that that will bend.

On my 98 the center jack point is right in front and slightly to the right (as looking at the vehicle) of the hole to access the radiator drain plug.
