When jacking at the front, you'll have to rig a support made of a length of 4x4 lumber bolted to the jack cradle to lift the car by means of the frame rails as illustrated. When lifting at the rear, use the same 4x4 rig under the rear axle spanning the rise in the axle. When lifting at the sides, use the same 4x4 rig under the rocker panels at the mid-point of the door. Jackstands must be placed only at the reinforced frame rail pads.
