Question Jackstands

Anyone have good advice on exactly where to place jackstands under the front end of a GC8? I've never come across a car that I couldn't find somewhere acceptable, but I've not had any real luck on the Impreza. I used the reinforced jacking points in the rear.

Any help would be appreciated, as I don't want to punch a hole in my floorboard just yet....

There are similar Jack-points just behind the front wheels. If not there, directly in-board from there is a square-tube, reinforced sub-frame that protrudes from the bottom of the body.

Thanks. I assumed that the box section was reinforced, but the one time I used it, it looked like the car sank on the stand, so I got it back up quickly and haven't used it since. Maybe it was just the undercoating compressing a little?

In any case, I'll give that a try next time.
