Jack the car on the bar that's next to the muffler (the one in between yourself and the muffler). Place the jackstands on the jacking points thats indicated in the manual.

Here's a graphic with the jack points on it. I've posted this before, but I can't find the old thread. Oh well, now we have a new one!

Those jacking points are for hydraulic lifts. If your using the scissor jack that came with the car, look along the unibody & there are grooves where the jack goes. Its pretty easy to figure out once you get down & under the car. thumbsup
