TechLink: Proper Lifting of the ATS and CTS Sedans

Recommended Posts

Proper Lifting of the ATS and CTS Sedan

When lifting the 2013-2014 ATS and 2014 CTS Sedan on a hoist, the vehicle should be lifted so that the hoist pads and/or lift arms do not contact the rocker panel molding. Each hoist pad must be located in the designated area in order to prevent any damage to the vehicle. (Fig. 12)

In the front location, place the lift pads on the rocker outer panel weld flange. (Fig. 13)

In the rear location, place the lift pads on the rocker outer panel rear cradle brace. (Fig. 14) Ensure the hoist pad is inside the rocker panel molding cut out area (notch).
