I know there are slots behind front tire, and in front of rear tire, but this is for a scissor jack, which I don't even know if I have one. There's no spare tire on the ZL1. But your SS should have one. But I would like to use my floor jack and place on stands.

no spare in the SS either, unless you paid for the option ... just a nice car of flat fixer, I think

I always use the subframe mount points both front and rear. But I also run the car up on ramps first which makes it easy to reach these points. The ramps might not be necessary if you have a low profile jack....
I agree, I use the same points with my floor jack. Just have a air pump and snot in a box for a spare...thanks GM.

One jack most of the time, however I use jackstands if I need to raise both sides or front or back together.

This. :thumbsup: Actually I use a jackstand all the time. Even when working on just one side and even if the floor jack is under there.... Hydraulics can fail at any moment.
