Hey everyone, I got into a discussion with a friend of mine about the safest place to use jack stands for our stangs. I have always lifted the rear with a jack from the diff. housing and placed two jackstands on the axles. For the front I placed the jack under the k member to lift and placed jack stands under the "OEM" locations for the front(just behind the front fenders).

A buddy of mine told me to use the subframe connector locations for the front and the rear for the jack stands. Have any of you ever tried this and is this recommended? I know there are locations on the body where if done incoorectly can bow the doors out while lifted.

Thanks
