use
the "sub-frame(s)" to lift the car and place the jack stands.
In front, there is a sub frame member that is really solid going
across in front of the oil and transmision pans.
There is a small round protrusion in the center, and I lift with the
hydraulic jack there, then place jack stands on either side. There is
a tubular section that the jack stands can cradle securely.
Next move the hydraulic jack to the rear. There is a similar sub frame
member there with a round protrusion in the center.
Place the hydraulic jack there.
12" length of 2x4 on each jack stand in back is helpful to spread the
load
at the jacking points on the side - otherwise you'll bend the sheet
metal flange and break the spot welds.
