If those are not where we are suppose to jack the car up from, then how are we supposed to use a quick jack? I have one specifically so I don't have to use a single side lift jack to lift the car up. So much simpler to use than jack stands and a shop jack.

@cuddy_k ?

I've always used the donuts...though with a quick jack the load is equally spread over the 4 of them. I suppose you could use the QJ pinch weld blocks and lift from the rockers, but you'd need to remove the rocker covers to keep them from getting bent.

Based on the responses, the fact the rear donuts / surrounding floorpan on my car look fine, and noticing from a picture I took where my garage jacked the car at the front I will jack it on the rear donut with a spreader plate and a spreader plate in the front corner behind the wheel arch:

For now I'll stick with the donuts. at most each is carrying 500 lbs.
