Default Jack Stand Location pictures

Well I hope this might help out some people. Today I had to get my 08 WRX off all 4 tires for the first time. I had a hard time trying to find where I put the jack stands. I read they go where I put the stock jack. I read about issues of the metal tabs getting bent. In searching I found adaptors to put on the jack stands but that seamed like a lot of work.

In my searching I found one post of how to put the jack stands sideways and it works if you have the right size jack stand. The picture was not that good to show how they went. So I took some.

I just hope this helps with an issue I had today in searching.

I go to the second chassis rail (about a foot farther inward than the one that the standard jack location is). I put a 2x4 on top of the stand to distribute the force more evenly.

Those tabs on my 01 are bent to **** now after less than a year of ownership. It doesn't look very sturdy in those pics, but I'll take a look at the placement next time I go under.

I tried to shake the hell out of it and it did not move at all.

Yeah those tabs are purely intended to be used with the OEM scissor jack because that jack has that groove in it such that no force is even applied to the tab. The top of the jack applies force to the bottom of the vehicle in that area, but the tab serves only to align the jack in the right place. On my 98 Civic and 09 Accord, the jack tab is significantly more beefed up so I can actually use my hydraulic jack at that point, but on the subie I wouldn't think about it. I put a 2x4 under it and jack it up on the inner chassis rail or on a crossmember with a rag on the jack point.

What year and body style Model A. Looks like our garage except we have a 1929 Ford Model A Phaeton with Right Hand Drive (originally from South Africa).
