Step 2: Elevate the Car

Use the floor jack to lift the front and rear of your car, and place jack-stands at all four corners.  Try to elevate the car so it is level - this will ensure proper fluid levels when refilling later.

I used the tow hooks to jack up the car and then placed the jack stands under the pinch welds at all four corners.

Note: In anticipation of having all four wheels off the ground, I broke the lug nuts loose on the wheels, lifted the car, and rotated the tires.  The manual indicates switching the front to the rear and rear to front; keeping the left on the left and right on the right sides.  If you do this, remember to re-tighten the lug nuts when you lower the car.
