    UMI has 2 point and 3 point, weld in or bolt in. All good stuff. The key to a proper install is to do it with the weight of the car on the suspension.

    I used 1ft pieces of a cross tie on all 4 wheels. Worked perfect for me.

    Whatever you do, avoid concrete blocks as they are not safe to support a car with. You can put ramps under the front wheels and jackstands under the back axle. The only caveat is that to install the bolt through the rear bracket on the SFC, you need to remove the suspension bolt from the lower control arm. With the bolt removed the car can shift around as the torque arm can slide in its mount. Therefore, only unbolt one side at a time.
