Where NOT to place jack stands!

Some of you may have followed the saga about why my differential would not come down a few inches when the lift was lowered. If you study the picture you will see that I had inadvertently placed the stand on part of the sub frame, hence, preventing it from hinging!

The point is, be sure to place the jack stands near the factory provided jack-point holes - away from sub frame!

(Most of you already knew this but for those who didn't...here it is!)
