    I use the method in Duncan's How2 http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15115
    The how2 is for oil flush/change but scroll down to the section about jacking and stands.

    Vehicle : Vectra Hatchback

    Trim : Life(well it was)

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 166000

    Default

    i jack mine using a piece of wood on a trolley jack on the square plate just forward of the jacking point and then put the axle stand on the chassis rail, as for the rear i usually just put the axle stand a little further back than normal so the car wants to sit on 2 wheels then just put the scissor jack under the rear jacking point to secure it, thats how i had it when doing my banana arms and had no troubles.

    edit: tbh a piece of wood in the jacking point is probably better, something im gonna sort, but ide still put the axle stand on the main chassis rail as opposed to the bush in duncans thread especially if it has got a nice flat on the axle stand saddle
