Where do you jack up your suburban and place jack stands?
Just curious where everyone places their floor jack for lifting rear and front of their truck/SUV and where you place jackstands?
I've been doing some rear brake work and have been using the frame rails toward the back, but they are bending!
I know some people put the jack under the rear diff, but the brake lines look like they'll get pinched by my jack stands (Using 6 ton rated jackstands BTW).
Should the frame rails be bending from the weight of the suburban?
As always, thanks in advance to everyone who takes the time to respond.

I lift from whatever location I need. I prefer to lift off the rear axle, but obviously I couldn't do that when I did the axle swap. I did notice when I tried to lift from the frame rail by too much at one time the rail wanted to bend. Take it in small steps and lift evenly and you should be ok.Christopher
