Default floor jack points

What are the best, safest points to lift my Bonneville using a floor jack and then put it on jackstands? I'm about to change my transmission fluid and want safe access.

Look for the bolts that mount the sub frame to the unibody. That'* where I lift and support.

Perhaps 8 or 12 inches. Just look for the big round washers. Should be 3 on each side in the front.

I use the subframe to jack with and then support on the rear of the subframe or middle by the control arm.

Dan.. three on each side, one in the front? (I think 00 may only have 4 like the W bodies)
