    Default Axle stands

    Hey guy's

    If the weather holds tomorrow im going to paint my calipers red with hamerite smooth, I think i have everything i need to do the job.
    i have got some axel stands just im not sure where to place then and i only have the jack that came with the car, so will want to put the car on the stands so i can do both sides at once, and while thats drying clean and use some super resin polish.

    where is the best place to have the axel stands?

    Thanks

    put them only under the subframes on the cars suspension...don't put them on the sills or the floorpan, it'll bend the car...

    so, front one just behind the wheel and under the engine's subframe..Rear one, put it on the small frame, not on a suspension link or you'll bend it..
