Does "a-arm front mounting point" mean the torsion bar cover, in front on the belly pan? I have a '71T, and there is what looks like a factory tow hook right in the middle behind the spoiler. The idea is to cut a 2x4 to fit between the torsion bar covers? The picture of the underside of the car with jacking points (not with me now, but I have it at work) - that means running the 2x4 between both "A'" points?

I have seen a number people use jack stands with some kind of cushion at the "C" points, but it's not clear to me how you lift the whole front of the car and access those points.

I will try to post the picture I am referring to tomorrow.

Anyone? Bueller?
