Thanks for the help - I'll try my stands under the factory jack points in the rear.

I have been doing the opposite in the front (jacking from the factory jack point and putting the stands under the frame rails), which seems to work out well.


: : What are the best places to put jackstands under an E30?

: : In the front, I've used the inboard "frame rails", but haven't found a good stable place in the rear. Is it safe to put the stands under the rear axle carrier?

: I usually jack the car up using the frame rails in front and the rear subframe in the rear so that leaves the stock jacking points free to use jack stands under. I'm sure there are other methods as well.
