Putting car on jack stands

Im about to put my 98 coupe on jackstands instead of leaving it on the rims and tires over the winter. IS it better to use the side jack points for the jack stands and have the suspension not under a load or is it better to put the jack stands under the LCA's and have the suspension under a load?

Dont put the car on jack stands, just move the car once a week or so. You put it on jack stands and the suspension will sag, its not gonna hurt the car at all to leave it

if you put it on jack stands, take the tires off and the suspension won't sag.

rims and tires are coming off, considering taking out the coilovers at the same time if the weather isnt too bad.
