Hi. I'm Mike from 1AAuto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

So to raise and support this Honda on the ground, we've got it here on our two post lift. You could put a jack. If you're gonna work on this side of the car, you put your jack right here and lift up. Place the jack stand under the sub frame here, a nice, flat spot.

Do the same on this side. You can jack it up, put your jack stand here, and do your work on the wheel side, brakes, or whatever.

In the rear of the car put your floor jack under here, jack it up. Either put your two jack stands under here, or if you've got jack stands that will fit right, you can put them under your pinch welds here. This is where we have it lifted on the two post lift, on the pinch welds, front and rear.
