its hard to see. what you have it placed on. If you're jack all 4 points, you should have the 2 in the front behind the wheel and the ones in the rear infront of the wheel. Not all behind the wheels like stated unless I can't read (count on that) Anyways, there is a little lip that should hang down about 3-4 from the edge of the doof. you'll see it , it points down. It may have, teeth for for a jack to slide in. Can't miss it.but about 6 inch behind the front wheel and 6 infront of the rear and you should be golden. I can't tell in that pic but it looks like you got a bad spot, go farther infront of the cat. I can't tell but looks like the floor. If you try to jack it up, its going through.

Or you can jack at the subframe
That's how you get the entire front end up, use a 4x4 or 2x8 across the "back" of the subframe and jack in the middle of it
Put jackstands under the frame rails as you show, or under the subframe "sockets"

Low Saturn to the rescue again!

The "subframe" in LS post is the dotted frame, beside each front wheel.
The "socket" is the rounded part, where the subframe bolt-to-body is located.
