    Where you have it is okay, AS LONG AS IT LOOKS AND FEELS STABLE. If you want better stability you can move the jack stands in more on the front off the loops for the stock jack (careful to clear the wheel well cover material) and the rear stands can go before or around where the curve begins on the rear.

    I notice in your photo that the 488 c.i. V10 is so heavy that it IS causing the front end to sag lower than the rear end...


    ...or did you tilt your camera?

    Oh Boy! Another Yellow thread!

    There are some jacking instructions on this site, I believe Janni posted them. For an entire lift of the car, I would think you would want your jack stands spread out further, further than your current placement on the stock jack points.

    The stock jack points are for raising one wheel at a time, not necessarily for supporting the entire car.

    I have to get to a meeting, but see if you can find Janni's jacking info in the illustrated upgrades area I think.

    Just a thought .. why not use a third pair of jack stands so that you have multiple support points?

    I put my front stands somewhere behind the crush zone.
