SOURCE: jacking points
there will be 4 points to place the factory jack in order to jack the car safely. they are rectangular in shape (the mirror image of the rectangle on the jack).
front 2 are located just behind the front wheels on the body/frame under the driver's & passenger door. follow the hinge of the front doors all the way down to where the paint transitions to the frame. look underneath and you will see the "hollow" rectangles. its about 6 inches back from the wheel arch.
rear 2 are just forward of the back wheels on the body/frame under the rear doors. they are about 8 inches forward of the wheel arch where it meets the frame. look for the "hollow" rectangles.

Jack one side at a time. Place your jack under the lower control arm, or if it won't go under on a frame rail and lift from there. You may need to use some blocking to get the car high enough if you jack at a frame rail.
Jacking on the transaxle housing puts you at high risk of doing some very expensive damage. That housing is either aluminum or white metal. They don't bend like steel, they just break. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thanks, I just thought I could do them both with the floor jack and jack stands. Best to do one at a time... "
I use exactly the same the jacking points as I would use with the factory scissor jack. They are reinforced to handle the load. You'll find these point marked with triangle stamped into the rail and in your owner's manual.
