Is it OK to put a 350/350R up on a 2-Post Lift using the front K-Member where the two bolts
attach it to the car behind the front wheels?
Not too enthusiastic for using the pinch welds if not necessary. It looks like I have to use the
pinch welds by the arrows in the rear, unless someone has an alternate location for the 2-Post
Lift Pads.

I wouldn't. FWIW I use the pinch welds on mine with zero issues. With the rubber pads, I haven't noticed even a scratch, much less bent pinch welds.

The pinch welds on this car, to put it mildly, are f$&@ing robust. They will take it in strides.

Thanks, getting ready to get my own lift, have an R coming in soon, the dealer's lift is not
too good, super old rubber pads. Will see what happens, would like them to install the front splitter
but I can wait if I think their lift is too marginal.
I also have a set of 2" ZL1 Pads and Mag Pucks.

This is mainly a truck dealer, they are not really set up yet for Shelbys, when I got my '16 Track Pkg. 350,
wouldn't let them touch it.

I put mine on a 2 post lift all the time on the pinch welds, no problems here either.

There are 2 bolts in the rear that are used when jacking rails are installed i believe. I think these are preweld assembly bolts...I typically put my jack with a rubber puck on these two bolts which are right next to the pinch weld in the rear.

Pinch welds here too. Except not in the pic I attached. It was the first time lifting it with the new lift and I used blocks of wood at the bolts you mention. After the first time I used the pinch welds the second time and was just fine and have done it that way since.
