I want to jack up the car with universal hydraulic lifter. After that I want to support the car with rigid metal supports. The question is where else (beside at 4 rubber support points) our cars can be lifted? or another option: I can put the hydraulic lift under the rubber support point, but where can i put the rigid metal support after that in order to remove hydraulic lifter and move it to another lifting point?
thanks.

My Personal "Safe-Lift" Points also include the Rear Differential Housing, and, in the Front, Engine Cross-Support, or where the Lower Control Arm attached to the body.

Correct, but a small remark on this one.

Make sure to only lift under the front one of these two crossmembers.

In the introduction manual for W140, Mercedes writes;
"Lift vehicle from the front center only at the front crossmember of the front axle carrier."
and;
"Do not lift vehicle at the rear crossmember of the front axle carrier, since this will deform
the front axle carrier.""

As you can see on these images, the front looks sturdier;

OK thanks for this. Sounds logical.
