Thanks for all your input. Prior to raising my car I observed that there are 4 lifting points near the fenders. The only reason why it took me that long to put the car on the support stands was because I used the lifting points to raise the car with the floor jack. Thus the floor jack is always in the way of the area that needs the stands. My jack is a compact jack so maybe thats the problem at hand? Or perhaps my garage is way too small. I would do one wheel at a time but its not safe to rely on just the floor jack. Any other DIY post on proper raising with photos would be welcomed.
