Rear jack position?


I saw this post

The original question is here Best place to raise car using floor jack?

And someone indicates "Look to the right of "3 Ton" in the picture. "

I still don't know where the point is to be used to support the rear body of my bull.

Can someone help? Whether the red arrow points to the right location for jacking?

Where the block of wood is is "supporting" the body. Where the red arrow is, you will be lifting the rear suspension, until the body starts to move up. Just be careful where the block is in the pic., you can fold over the brackets for the rear control bars. The factory points are just ahead of the rear wheel under the sideskirts, below the rocker panels. They are cut-out with pinch welds on either side. You can use the current location in the pic., just do not push/pull to hard while doing work. You could place jack stands under the mounts where the red arrow is indicating, but keep in mind, when you lower the jack, the suspension will compress a few inches.

Just make sure that my arrow pointing to the right object. When I drew the arrow, I mean to use it indicate the round rusted cylinder.
