Used to be a CLK430
Jacking points on W208

Hey guys,
This Saturday marks my first mod on my CLK ~ woohooooo!! I will be installing 12mm spacers on the rear, but am wondering about where to jack up the car. I read some of the archives and some said to use the diff, others said don't, what do you think? I will be using a Sears floor jack and am worried about using the built in jack points due to the proprietary pattern. Any help would be greatly appreciated! And yes, I will post before and after pics!!

For the rear, you can either use the rear jack pads which are located a few inches inside near the rear of the side skirts (look first!) or from the rear differential. I usually use the differential, as it allows me to jack up both sides at once, making the process much quicker. Make sure that the car and jack are both on a flat surface first.
