    Hi Everyone,

    I'm going to pull the rear axle out from under my '81, Z28. I plan to install rear disk brakes, new diff cover and new leaf spring bushings. Where is the best place to put jack stands at the back to support the body yet clear the leaf springs? There's a cross member at the back, just behind the bumper cover, but it seems too thin to support the weight. Your comments are appreciated.

    Just forward of the front mounting pocket for the leaf springs has has always worked for me, there is still frame rail in that spot
