I'm assuming that if it just needs a rear to front rotation I could just jack one side and lift both tires off the ground but just not sure where the jack point would be to do this?

Also how do I know what is the best rotation to follow, Rearward cross, Forward Cross, X Pattern or Front to Rear?

Please don't take this the wrong way, I truly believe in an open forum where everyone can share, but the answer to your question is available in your owners manual. Best of luck.

just lift it barely enough so you can remove the tires. You are not getting under the car anyway.

These jack points are meant to life up one wheel only. Not the entire side of the car. So it would not help OP to do a F-R rotation.

The manual does not talk about jacking up one side of the car. It's probably not a good idea because what we think is center (of the car in the middle) is really not the center in terms of weight distribution.

If somone know of a safe (proper) way to jack up one side at a time, please educate us.

Jack points in front and after the wheel or lift at the front & rear tow hooks. The easiest way is to lift up the entire car on all fours with jackstands. Otherwise, plan on working in a 5th wheel (spare tire) into the rotation.

He is talking about jack points period in the manual.

Use jack at the lift point, place a jack stand, use front or rear jack point, put in another jack stand .. tah dah.

True.

I don't like to do that because I can't chock up the wheel on the same side (because it's now lifted off the ground).

I think that's important because when you jack up the car, with a floor jack for example, the angle of the lift cause the jack to slide in, under the car. I won't think about the geometry angles, I rather keep 3 wheels on the ground when lifting up at a corner, because there is chance the weight could shift forward and/or sideway.

Well unless you have a lift .. you'll just have to figure out another way .. chock what you can and e-brake.

If I ever have me a big garage or storage building, I'm definitely investing in a lift.

Your correct. That is the question I was asking. I seen garages do it all the time where they floor jack one side of the car and both tires come off the ground. I just wasn't sure where a safest place to put the jack at.
