Hello guys. I am searching for the best jack stands. Which brand and which model stands is good to buy? Any type stands related suggestion will be appreciated.
I think mine are Torin, Sunex makes the same style and a few others do too, lightweight aluminum and cross bolt vs ratcheting teeth:

Is that the good place for using floor jack and jack stands to lift the rear end?..

View attachment 10928

Ford says no to lifting, but yes to placing two jackstands there. I have lifted from that area without issue, you just must use something (I use scrap wood) to spread the load evenly between the inner LCA mounts. Don't just use the jackpad or you'll put undue stress on the rear subframe.

I used floor jack there twice without wood temporarily (to place jack stands at both sides of pinch weld points. ) Am I ok or should I check for damages?!?!?!?
