    Jack stands

    Just a quick question:

    Is it ok to put an f-body onto jack stands, so that just the left or right side is off the ground?

    I know it's more common to raise the front or the rear, but if I wanted to work under the whole length of the driver's or the passenger's side, would it place unnecessary stress on any components of the side that had its wheels on the ground?

    it's ok as long as you make sure to lift on the frame rails and place the jack on the frame.

    Agree. Just make sure it is placed on the frame rail and not the pinch weld in the front. Out back, either use the frame rail in the area where the lower control arm connects to the body, or simply place the jackstand under the rear axle.
