I would vote with Jim on this. If you have a six speed you have steel rear that you could use as a jack point. For me I'll stick to using the frame rails.JimGnitecki said:The rear axle housing on my 04 automatic SSR is definitely aluminum. I know because a mechanic who did not realize that stripped one of the bolt holes by using a pneumatic wrench set to a torque suitable for a steel housing, and had to re-tap it.
I really don't like the idea of using that as a lift point on a vehicle that weighs 4800 lb with fuel, and puts almost 50% of that on the rear axle.
