ALI’s 2017 guide

The Automotive Lift Institute, Inc. (ALI) has introduced the 2017 edition of ALI’s “Vehicle Lifting Points for Frame Engaging Lifts”.

This updated guide is a quick-reference single-source manual for lifting point information as recommended by the vehicle manufacturers. The 70-page Lifting Points Guide (LP-G) for domestic and imported cars and light trucks uses over 200 undercarriage images to cover the most recent 25 model years.

For this new edition, the 2017 model year vehicles were added, some older images were revised, and additional cautionary notes were provided to clarify pick-up point locations for shop owners, technicians and other LP-Guide users.

The 2017 edition now includes a “Safe Lifting Suggestions” section providing additional guidance to those using a vehicle lift.
