G20 Safe Jack Point

Anyone know where the front center jack point is on the G20? I'm guessing just behind the center bolt on the shield covering the suspension components, but would like to confirm. Thanks.

Thanks, but I'm looking for a center point under the car to lift the entire front so that I can place jack stands under the points (front) in your illustration. If I lift from those points I have no place to put the jack stand.

With the protective shield in place, I can't see the suspension components so it's a guess as where to place the jack.

There's no factory safe Jack point in the center of the vehicle as even the stiffening plate is aluminum. If you need to place jack stands under the front on each side you'll need to jack up the rear enough to get the stand under the front pads. May need to go side to side above the lowest jack stand setting.
