    Default Were to put Axle stands safely

    hi there

    A simple question for you all. Were is the most safest place to put axle stands on a vectra c 2003 both front and back. if possible can any post a picture of were and how to for the front and back.

    Basic question but its hard to find a safe place and strong enough place.

    Thanks

    For the front, I always position mine toward the front of the chassis leg that runs under the car (from near the rear, to front). Never had any issues with it coming off, or buckling under it's own weight, and it seems secure

    As for the rears, I've been fortunate enough never to have to need to put it on stands, so can't answer that yet!

    If you look under the sills,there are 4 big square rubber pads,they're there for putting your axle stand under.I suggest you put some wood on top of the stands to give yourself a safe platform.FELIXX.

    Thanks for your reply guys. I know the rubber pads your on about but then comes the question as to how i will get the car jacked up or down? I think tony is onto something.

    But please do keep any suggestions coming and even images if you have any guys.

    I ask cause i recently had a job to do on the rear of the car and couldn't find a good place to put the stands anywhere and same with front so now i seek advice.

    Thanks very much

    If you look a little further under the car you will see some round support points.These are the jacking points that they use when its on a ramp.If you jack the car up with a trolley jack,you shouldn't have any problems.FELIXX.

    Worried I'm doing it wrong but its always been sturdy for me...

    I have the Irmscher side skirts, and as said there are 2 large blocks however these are usually in use with the Jack to raise the car... Between the blocks and the arches I have a small rectangular cut out in my skirts, which I prop the axle stand on as I gathered there was a jacking rail underneath....

    Held up everytime I've been working away looool
