Rear Jack Stand Point - HELP ASAP!! RSB INSTALL

Tried searching AZ, AF and even here, but can't find an answer on where to put jack stands on the rear part of the car. Found the lifting points for a lift/car jack, but nothing that says where to mount a jackstand.
Im ready to install my Neuspeed RSB and this is becoming a major PITA.
Please help. ready to go, like now. Will check back in 10. Thanks in advance

Re: (the4ringer)

i've only raised mine with a floor jack. I remember that in the front, there are plastic covered frame rails about a foot inside of the jack points that are solid. I didn't think to check on the rear, though - sorry.

Yeah, Its not a problem to raise the car, but thats only being temporary. Totally unsafe to work with ONLY the floor jack holding the car up. Much easier AND safe to put jackstands in place for full vehicle worktime.
times like this I wish I had a lift...

I meant that these are good jackstand points in the front, especially if you use a small wood block to spread the load a bit.
