    Jacking Point distance on E46 and E36

    Need a favor. Wondering if you guys can measure the furthest jacking point (front to back) on both E36 and E46 cars.

    Thanks

    Buying a Quick Jack to work on future E46/E36. Still deciding if I'd go with Quick Jack or EZCarLift actually since I also have 2 other cars (Maxima and Sienna) and hoping one size fits all.

    I should've made it clear, sorry. The jacking pad on E46 is rectangular, I'm looking at the furthest distance between the front edge and he rear edge of the jacking points. Same with E36 bu instead of rectangular edge, it's circle edge.

    These measurments might be an inch or 2 max off.
    e46 sedan full rocker length is about 76inches
    e36 sedan full rocker length is about 72inches
    2003 Nissan maxima full rocker length is about 82inches.
    Given that the lift has adjustability on the jacking points, i would worry more about the lift being able to fit in between the wheel base or as i gave above, the rocker length.
    I dont know what sienna you have but if you want i can give you those measurements also.

    I have the Sienna and Maxima. Thanks for the measurement of E46 and E36.

    I'm trying get the Quickjack BL-7000EXT. The overall length for this is 76", this is not barely met the Sienna and a tad too long for the E36

    Any chance you could measure E36 front to real wheel distance, not from center to center but from vertical tangent. I think as long as the the lift fit inside the front and rear wheel with maybe 1-2 inches clearance than it should have room to lift.

    Thanks again.

    Im going based off of a frame measurement diagram and looks like you have about 88inches from outer edge of front tire to the outer edge of the rear tire.
    From center of wheel front to center of wheel rear is 106in. 106in-17in for wheel and about 2in for tires comes out to 87in give or take an inch.
    So youll have a minimum of 10inches easy to spare. I can post the diagram that im looking at incase you want to make sure yourself. Also this is for a e36 coupe, although a sedan is 1in longer.
    Coupe is 106.28in exactly from center of front to center of rear wheel
    Sedan is 107.28in exactly from center of front to center of rear wheel

    If you have the diagram that you can share that would be awesome. Thank you for doing this, I'm sure I'm not the only one needing this. I think this is valuable information.
    Thanks again.

    Here you go. Measurements are in MM. Any questions feel free to ask. Its a bit complicated but not that bad to understand.

    Thank you very much. This helps a bunch.

    How did you figure out where the tires are on this diagram? I guess knowing where the center of the tire is and how big the overall diameter of the tire would yield the location as well.

    Or I just go find an E36 and measure it to be sure.

    Thanks again.

    The little car in the middle is the center of front to center of back wheels.
    Since 17s are the most common on these cars I did 2700mm or 106in(total between front-rear) minus 17in(radius-8.5in for front and 8.5in for rear)minus 2in(1in tire height for each wheel)= 87(total distance between front and rear tires)
