Default Front and rear jacking points on 09 LS 600HL

So, after my winter hiatus and now having some time to work on my car again. I decided the DIY caliper painting task. I bought jack stands/jacks/paint/emblems..everything I needed to get it all finished.

Here's the catch, I couldn't find the jack point in the front even after checking Google/Owners manual. The rear was easy because it's the differential but can anyone help me with the front?

I had the same problem and used the factory jack points behind the front wheels under the front of the side sill and cut some wood to fit on both sides of jacking points so that they wouldn't bend. Kind of hard to explain but I couldn't find much info and I didn't want to mess anything up. The 600 is one heavy beast.

I know exactly what you mean. .basically cutting a slit into the wood that would slide into the metal lip to keep from bending right? Our factory jack has that cutout which most aftermarket jacks don't. .sux

^^^ Correct CJITTY, I didn't want to bend the metal piece that fits in the cutout of the factory jack and by putting the slits of wood on each side I could use my normal jack since it gives it more of a flat spot to use a regular jack on.
