I'm preparing to switch my base wheels to a set of TSW's. I have all my equipment ready to do the job, but my question is, where do you position the jack stands? If the hydraulic jack is lifting at the point of the pre-installed jack pucks, where do you place a jack stand?

I'm sure the wheel/tire exchange could be done one wheel at a time using only the lifting jack but I thought having a jack stand, or a pile of 2 x 4's under the car would be a good safety measure.

You could place stands under each side of the cross brace front and rear. The location is specified in the manual. The other option is to lift the car from the center cross member and place jack stands on the pucks.

There are two center lift points, see owners manual pages 10-4 and 10-5 for the location. There are pictures showing the front and rear lifting points.

Not sure if these will help, but I noticed these products on RPI's website.

C7 Corvette Lock In Leave In Jacking Pads Pucks

They are jack stand "pucks" and there is also a quick YouTube video showing where they are placed. The info here might help you. Good luck.

Thanks for all the help. I got the below diagram which is probably the picture in the printed hard copy of the manual. It shows all 10 jacking points. My mistake was only looking in the online copy of the manual, which I find now is incomplete.
