you need to use the Manual to answer this question.

There are over 100 "Grounding points" on our cars.

Get more specific with your question and you may get a better answer.

Re: where are the grounding points?

Right i know the whole chassis is the ground, im talking about the factory grounds that are already on the car, like the one that's on the trans, and alternator, like those re grounding kits you can buy, what points do they tell you to ground?

None in the rear...your relocating your battery you will need to clean up the surface anyways or it wont ground correctly.Clean surface=good ground
dirty surface=sheety ground
