Just place them where you'd normally lift the car with the spare tire jack on the side rails. These cars are nearly 70-30 weight distribution front to rear, so it will be just fine.
There may be a rubber figure-8 type rubber aux spring there. Honestly, I have not yet figured out what its for. Most guys on another forum I'm on just take it off and throw it away. I've had mine off for 100k miles now and haven't noticed a single difference. The interesting thing is that some cars came with it, and some didn't.
