2012 vehicle lifting guide now available

Jan. 13, 2012

The Automotive Lift Institute Inc. (ALI) has released the 2012 edition of its “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 60-page guide for domestic and imported cars and light trucks uses over 200 undercarriage images to cover the most recent 20 model years.

For this new edition, the 2012 model year vehicles were added, some older images were revised, and additional cautionary notes were provided in an effort to clarify pick-up point locations for shop owners, technicians and others, ALI says.

The ALI sponsors the guide annually as an industry service, utilizing data furnished exclusively for ALI by Chek-Chart Products, MOTOR Information Systems. Many proactive companies and franchises now incorporate ALI’s lift guide and other safety materials as an integral component of their overall employee safety and training program.

Visit ALI’s website www.autolift.org to order this updated guide or for additional information on other safety materials and standards sponsored by the lift manufacturers that support ALI’s mission of promoting the safe design, construction, installation and use of automotive lift products.
