Default What is the best way to jack up a C5 ??

I'm going to do a brake job.

SO, how do I jack up the car?

I have pucks and one jack and 4 jack stands.

Can I jack/jack stand one wheel at a time?
Should I have two jacks and have someone help and jack both back wheels at the same time then do the front?
If I use the pucks, where do I put the jack stands, as the puck spot will be used by the jack??

The guys at Discount Tire pop the hood and truck and open the doors when they lift the car, it relieves stress I guess.

Add anything I missed.

thanks,
