Assuming you're just lifting the front of the car, look a few inches past the back of the wheel well and you will see two triangular-shaped "darts", located at the rocker panel's flange--where you normalls put your jack. I actually jack up the car to the back of these two triangles and center the jackstands between the two triangles. All this area has metal that is twice as thick as the surrounding area. You can actually feel this sturdier area with your hands.

Sorry, no picks....

What Tim said.

If you collect dirt under the car like an off-roader, wipe the area with a rag to find the triangles....I had to.

I much prefer to place the stands either under the suspension or the frame rails. Much more secure areas. Also your not contributing the rocker rust issue by chipping the pant up along the edge of the panel any worse than it already is. Also be sure to set the emergency brake before Jacking.

This is an example of the car being supported by the control arm.
