If you look at the suspension, and specifically where the stabilizers secure to the vehicle, you can use most of those points to lift it with. Just use the mount points, and not any of the arms, as you can either damage them, or put undue pressure on the bushings and joints and cause early failure there. Then you’ve still got to find places to put the stands.
Try not to get the stands too close to the front of the vehicle, nor too close to the center. You want to get as close to the balance points the wheels use as you can.
After I lift a vehicle (on stands), I always step away a bit, and then rock the vehicle. If it’s solid, then it should be fine while I’m under it pulling and pushing. If there’s any movement (except maybe rear suspension if I’m on a solid axle), I re-evaluate, and move the stands. When I say rock it, I mean really try and rock it…I use all 230 lbs to push on it. I’m a fairly strong guy, but I don’t want a ton (or more) of metal on my chest. Might make for a bad evening, and a mad wife.
We’re here if you have more questions…
