    Placement of Jack Stands

    I'm wondering where other owners put jack stands when lifting their vert? It seems the k member is the best place to jack up the front but I'm not sure about stand placement.

    If you have SFCs on your vert, those work great for jacking and jackstands.

    Sounds good those were the ones I was looking at. I think after 410s those will be my next mod.

    Well, until you get your SFCs, jacking it where the owners manual recommends never hurts the car. Lift the rear w/ the diff, and lift the front at the K-member and slip the jacks in where the notches are under the rocker panel. If rotating tires, I jack under the axle and control arm using 2 jacks and lift one side, then the other.
