Jack points?

Where are most of you placing the jack when jacking these cars up? I would normally use the pinch weld on the the body, but I do not want to bend anything on my baby lol. My car is a little too low to get it anywhere else. I may try driving it up dome boards to get it a little higher to get the jack under the sub frame mounts. I am just curious

I drive up on 2x12s, then jack it up from the subframe and put stands under it.
DO NOT work under a jack.

Low profile floor jack from Walmart (wasn't very expensive) ... not a big fan of the stock jack ... I would look at the owners manual for the correct points, but like Patriot says, jack stands are a must.

Subframe on the front for me as well.

I just don't know where the best jacking point and jackstand point is on the rear of the car. Any ideas?

The spot I use when changing the tires is a round point just in front of the rear tires by the gills.

I found this a while back. This is what I have been using and the car has not fell on me yet. Sorry about the thumbnails. I can't figure out how to upload full size pics.
