    QuestionJack stand points - where?

    Can someone tell me where to place the jack stands for both front and rear support? I've looked underneath for a solid support point, but can't seem to locate any.

    Also, when using a hydraulic lift in the front end, where is the best place for that?

    Since I own a 97 Catera with 172k miles, I have a feeling I'll be putting it up on block a lot

    Re: Jack stand points - where?

    I had the same problem when I first jacked the car up.
    My '98 has been on stands for about 4 weeks now, and everything is holding up fine.
    I put the rear stands under the back side of the lower control arms. The front stands are under the frame rails just behind the front wheels. I will take a couple pictures if I get a chance.
