Default Jack Stand Location

I'm needing to get all fours up in the air for my rim swap. I have found the jacking location in the owners manual but I need a discription, diagram or pictures of the proper locationforall 4 jack stands (front and rear) to get her up in the air if any anyone has any.

Thanks,
YBnormal...drive a Monte

Default RE: Jack Stand Location

The times I've raised my '06 Monte up for cleaning/detailing underneith I raised the car under the engine cradle with my floor jack. I set two of my jack stands at points under the engine cradle cause for one, I know it's there to support the drive train. If it were a weak point Chevy wouldn't be using it to hold the engine in the car.

In the rear I placed my floor jack under the center of the back of the car. There's a cross beam that holds the rear suspension in. You have to lay under the car to see it. I place a 4x4 pie of wood on the floor jack cradle, raise the floor jack just enough to contact the cross beam, then climb out from under the car to raise the car up enough to get floor jacks under the back. I used a piece of wood cause I don't want it scratching anything.
I looked for the tube sections of the subframe then placed the jack stands there. You can do in the front as well. I just used to engine cradle cause I knew it had to be strong.

if you can hit the frame with the jack then jack it up from there, if not then use the control arms on the front and jack it up from there, then put the jack stands under the frame

I just want to know where I can swing the arms in from a 4 point hydraulic lift.

Correct me if I am wrong but here is a photo of (what I think is) the cutout that TheMonteMan refers to for the stock in-truck jack (again, a 2001 SS shot).
