Default Floor Jack Points

What are the proper front and rear points to use a floor jack? I have a '97 SE. Thanks.

Front: center of crossmember next to tranny

Rear: is there one? I've used the bottom of the a-arm where the spring sits.

I wanted to rotate the tires and would assume it'* easiest with both ends in the air.

It will be easiest. There'* a rear crossmember you can jack off of, although it'* not nearly as strong as the front. You also have to manuever around the exaust.

Put your jack stands on the subframe mounts behind the front control arms, then jack up the rear.
