Next, to go either side and jack up the front of the car from the inner jacking point (not on the rocker) - pix are in the Bentley if you don't know where these are, but roughly speaking, they are about 10" inboard of the rocker/sill. With the back of the car already on jackstands, the chassis is rigid enough that you can then put jackstands under the two forward jacking points.

Finally got around to taking some pictures to illustrate this process. It really is as simple as it seems!

Smile jacking the rear of boxster

I use the medium aluminum Harbor Freight with about a 32" piece of 2" square by 1/4" wall tubing to span the rear suspension frame. It's a perfect slide under the car and it's lifting where the end of the flat aluminum links (?) end by attaching to the upright that goes almost straight up to the body.
