    I never use the std jacking points, for the front I jack where the rear inner bolt is that holds the front lower arm. The rear I think I use where the trailing arm fixed to the chassis I`d have to look to be sure Its a automatic thing.

    The standard jack goes on a lip under the car at either end. Or if your using a troley jack any solid part of the chasis is good

    When using the standard jack, place a piece of rag between the jack and sill. It's easy to damage the underseal.
