Default jacking up a Gallardo? Where?

Where do you place the jack to lift the rear of the car off the ground without messing up the under tray?

FYI you will need a professional shop jack, the run of the mill auto parts store jacks will be to high. Make sure the Jack plate drops into the body of the jack and is well under 5". Jacking from the front is hard to explain without pictures. You should order the shop manual from LamboStuff, it shows you all of the jack points and has a few other tidbits of info.

Are the lifting points in Red? B/c it seems you can lift from the rear on the cross member. diagram is confusing to me.

You can do that too. But then you lift both rear wheels off the ground and risk the car rolling forward so make sure to use wheel chalks. Also, the rear crossmember is the lowest of all the jack points, so while I can get my jack under the car at the location in the diagram, it won't fit under the rear unless I use ramps first.

Thank you just purchased a Orange 2006 Gallardo and will be getting new Black Apollo Wheels to put on her this week and trying to find out how to jack this thing up to put on these wheels.
