I tried searching and couldn't find what I was looking for.
A while ago, at a shop that does a good deal of fbody and corvette work, I noticed that a floor jack somewhere under the rear was used.

Is this recommended? Where's the right spot to put it? I read somewhere "handle flush against the bumper" but I don't quite understand that.

Anyone do this?

Thanks.

they most likely stuck the jack under the pumpkin to jack it up

The floor jack was placed under the rear axles gear housing.

i now recall that he pretty much had to crawl under the car to get it back there... it was under the pumpkin.
