My dealer said it was not needed- put 50 psi in the tires to eliminate flat spots. I store my car for the winter, too. For 90 days I think NOT lifting it is OK- more than than I think I would. I have lifted the car in the past, however. It helps the suspension, etc. At all 4 points under the car you should see round rubber pads(behind the front wheels and in front of the rears) Lift the car at the front or rear jacking point (pad) and put a jack stand under the other pad. I suggest a piece of wood between the pad and jack stand- it'll "crunch" a bit, but it'll spread out the pressure and protect the pad. Just work your way around the car. BE CAREFUL and use quality jack stands and never stick your legs or hands ANYWHERE where they might be hurt if the car slips off the jack, jack stand, etc.
