Default Where to position jack stands

Where is the best place to position jack stands? I'm jacking from the notched points on the rocker panels, but those spots are then not available to lower the car on to jack stands.

That looks like the underside of a S197 to me. Here's Ford's diagram for SN95 jacking points. (Also, if you have subframe connectors, you can use them as lift points as well.)

AS far as what the pic looks like, jack stand points are jack stand points,
make, model, and so on doesn't matter when you're providing examples
and reference. I saw the pic you posted, but the one with the car on
its side, shows better detail on jack-stand points, then the rear axle points.

For the most part, yeah. The biggest difference I'm seeing here is the K-member lift point. I use it all the time; it's so handy.
