I would'nt recommend either of these places to jack a tr6. They were
not designed to take that sort of load (especially the sway bar).
I would recommend the chassis cross bar at the front, and the chassis
rails at the back. If you have 2 jacks then this is really quick and
you don't flex the chassis too much.
