260z Factory Jack Points

This should be really simple and quick for someone to answer. I downloaded the 260z manual from xenons30 and It is missing the General info section that contains the jacking instructions. Could someone tell me where the jack points are? Thanks, Jeff

well promis to NEVER EVER EVER EVER jack it up by the frame rails. now... there are 2 jack points both are obvious because they have flat square plates on the bottom of them so it looks like something should be placed there aka jack. one is the cross member on rear diff if you get behind the car drop to the floor you see the *** of the diff look 10 inches more forward you'll see the BIG steel plate thats a jack point. the front one is the front cross member/engine cradle. drop on the floor again but infront of the car look straight down the middle you'll see a thick bar with the steering rack attatched to it it stretches under the oil pan of the motor. right in the center of it another plate. thats the front jack point. if you cant find them now i got nothing for you lol....
