    See page 287 of the owners manual for location of jacking points.

    Jacking rails are by far the best option, I honestly would avoid a lot of the easy maintenance on my car if I didn't have them.
    Do not jack by the differential under any circumstances.

    Two jacks...one under each control arm.

    Oh, and as for the color choice...it’s your car, how about you do what YOU want. I figure if everyone else is paying for it, I might give them a vote. Otherwise...

    I just voted keep them OEM and only because usually OEM holds up better (not all the time). And I don’t know the color of your car?

    Color of your car - exactly what I came here to say; however, I tossed in a vote for red. Mine's magnetic gray metallic and I went red. My friend said they really stand out when I'm driving because the spokes of the wheels disappear.

    BUT, the best feedback by far is do what YOU want with YOUR car. Let us know which way you go. No matter what, you own and drive a GT350. I still grin like a fool every time I get in it, and it has been my daily driver for 2 years.

    that’s exactly why I want to do it and I also have the gray so I’m going to do red too. Pretty excited and I just installed the steeda jacking rails. Looking forward to knocking this out soon

    My buddy's 350 is magnetic gray, white stripes with yellow calipers. Way better that red. It is stunning. We both used G-2 paint about 2 years ago. Still looks new. BTW, mine is Black with matte stripes, lime green border, lime green calipers. The Cars and Coffee crowd say it's the best looking GT350 on the road. Personally, I think the avalanche and lead foot are the best colors on these cars. I'd do yellow over red. You should at least consider it before doing another red caliper car. IMO.
