Iím sorry you found my initial post frustrating. As I said in that post, the frame member behind the differential is high, and requires a long reach of the jack, with some filler to take up space. That is totally accurate, and I indeed did lift the car in that manner. I simply found it more comfortable to use the diff housing (the black portion you describe) rather than working with such an extended jack. I was not guessing at anything, just trying to describe a couple of options. It's always challenging to desribe service procedures on a forum, and your comments are well taken.
