    I use the same points on mine except normally I'll put the rear 2 under the axle unless I need the suspension unloaded then I'll use the subframes where he was talking about. I've also put all 4 under the subframes too.

    Well.. to replace the shocks.. don't you have to have the rear unloaded? If not, then yeah, I put them under the axles.

    ok, i have SFCs, can i just ride the 4 points on them or will they be too close together and risk tipping?

    I've put mine in those spots several times. I've never had any issues up there. I usually use the front control arms just because that frees up more space under the car so you're not crawling in and out of jackstands all day. If you're doing shocks and struts on all 4 corners though you almost have to put yours on the subframes. You'll be fine.
