Lo puoi fare così ?

Versus

Puoi lo fare così ?

Which one is correct? Are both version correct? If so, is there any differences or preferences between them?

There are two possible correct forms: your first one (Lo puoi fare così?) and the one where the pronoun lo is appended to the infinitive fare, yielding farlo: Puoi farlo così?

The preference among the two forms is mostly subjective and euphonic.

(Something more can be found in the answer to a question that touches on a similar topic: «Are there rules for the positioning of clitic pronouns?»)

    So no, the second "Puoi lo fare così" is not correct :)
