What is the best and safest way to keep the car raised for repair underneath?
Done some minor repairs (mid pipe and muffler) but would like to remove and check Torque Tube.

What location to put blocks/jack stands for stability and longer stay

Make sure the car is lifted on a flat even surface. No inclines!!!

I put 2 jack stands just behind the front tires and 2 at the rear bumper.  You have to do it in stages but it gets the car high enough to work under and is very stable.

Along with jack stands at all four corners, I like to shove long blocks of wood underneath the frame rails just in case a jack fails or something...
