2005 Legacy Sedan - where to put jack stands?

Recommended Posts

I need to rotate my tires and would like to do the work myself. My problem is that I don't know a safe spot to put the jack stands once I lift the car with a floor jack. Does anyone have photos or recommendations on the best place to put them?

 

Thanks,

I'd check the owner's manual. Usually it shows the jacking positions and spots for jackstands. On most vehicles if you look down along the bottom of the vehicle under the doors there is a little sill there, and there's sometimes a little groove or slot in it for the tire changing jack to hook to help keep from slipping out. Usually I put my jackstands in this position on the outside of the sill (not on the sill - that'll make it fold over).
