Best way to put the ZL1 on jack/jack stands?

Does anyone have any guidance on the best way to jack up a ZL1 front end?

I bought these. They get the car up high enough to use a floor jack.

Get skylanes jack pads and jack it up then place the jack stands just behind where te subframe attaches to the main frame.

Skylanes jack pad thread has good pics showing where to put the stands.

Race ramps are also a good way to get access.

I got a low profile jack from the local parts store. Jacked up the car from the jack point behind the front tires and set jack stands under the subframe.

Am I stupid, or is the front subframe underneath the belly Pam?

Purchaced these adapters from Skylane. Used my antique floor jack and removed the pad off of it so it would clear the rockers. Worked like a champ.....
