With the e brake set, place the floor jack in the front of the car. About 18" in there is a nice cross member there to lift on, place the jack in the middle of the cross member.
The car will come up quick and even (both wheels at once).
Place your jack stands at the back of the sub frame about where the front door meets the fender, there will be a big sub frame mount, you place the stand in front of this.
Leave the jack in place if you can for added safety. Also if your removing your front tires, place them under the car behind the jack stands (another safety measure).
I find the rear to be a lot tougher as my jack wont reach to the center cross member and I have to lift one side and then the other.
