I was curious after looking at other people who have/are pulling their motors or putting the whole car on stands.



Where should you put them? Or where do you use?



On the front I used the A-Arms, by the part that mounts to the subframe I guess you would call it? Where the A-Arm mounts and has a bushing..



On the rear I didn't know what to use, so I rested the main subframe part that wraps around the diff.. But closer out to the wheels..



Where do you guys do it?

Thats exactly where I do mine, except when I have to drop the rear subframe, in which case I use a block of wood on top of the jackstand, and put it just outside of the folded seam on the bottom of the car, at the front of the rear wheel well. Thats where the B pillar meets the door sill.

on lowered cars the tow hooks are nice too, until it snaps and bends the crap out of the headlight motor (this was a towing injury)
