I'll do a thread on jacking tomorrow maybe (not to insult anyones intelligence) but i've perfected it (as others probably have but don't talk about it)

Basically here's how you do it:

Raise the side-rear of the car first via the jack pad high enough to get a jackstand under the front side (same side as you're jacking the rear from)

Lower the jack.

Repeat on other side. Get another stand under the front. You now have the front up on jackstands.

Finally, raise the rear via the rear subframe and get two jackstands under each rear-side jack pad.

All four jackpads are now supported by a jackstand.

On cars with a front central jacking nub, the process is much simpler/easier.
