Also helps to drive up on a couple blocks of woods as well prior to lifting the car - since the Impreza is so low, it makes getting the jack to the diffs a little challenging. Driving up on wood blocks helps a lot
Argh! Why didn't I think of that. All I needed was another 1.5-2" to make the front easy to get the jack under. Thanks! Next time I do any work with it on jack stands I'll run the front up on a couple 2x4's before jacking it up.
