Jacking up my car -- where to put the stands??

Hi guys, I was trying to do some work from under my car and got myself a hydralic jack and a pair of stands. But after I jacked up the car on one side from the jacking point, I don't know where to place the stands! I have a 1998 Honda Civic Si. Could somebody please tell me what is a safe location to put the stands at, when the jacking points on the side is taken up by the hydralic jack? Thanks a lot!

there should be tow hooks at the front that you could support it at...


i think the best way is to jack it from the tow hook and then support it from the side plate things for using the factory jack to change a flat

tow hook at the rear, and jack point in front, slightly off to the right from middle of car, you will see it, small metal plate with 2 holes in each end.

or you could jack from the LCA and place the stand at the Jack point....

there are no "stand points" it's all the same as Jack points

Thanks guys for all the help! But what is the LCA?

So I suppose I should jack it up from the front tow hooks, which are in front but slightly off to the right from middle of car, and then put the stands at the jacking points on the sides. Does that sound good?
