how do you correctly jack up a sky?
 
I would like to rotate the tires on my sky redline,I have about 5000 miles on them. I would like to know if there is anybody that knows of the proper way to jack this car up. I have read that dealers have lifted cars improperly and done damage. I'm trying to avoid this. I did not see anything about this in the owners manual. Anybody know of a link to info on this. Any help would be appreciated.

I have also heard of people using jacking pucks that the corvettes use to make the jacking easier/safer

Thank you for your help. and the link. It is common sense... this is how I jack any other vehicle. I was worried about body flex. from what I have read others have had broken or cracked body panels. I didn't know if it was from body flex. It sounds safe to just jack it up and go to it. I thought it was better to ask and look the fool than to jack it up and have the body panels crack. The only thing I can figure is they must have had the jack pad against the body panels

The damage comes from the lift arms hitting the lower edge of the front fenders behind the wheel well. Not any frame damage. Our boys cracked one...let's just say the learning curve was rather steep. Not a cheap fix. Just have to flip up the pads on the arm end, all should be fine.
