A good trick is to lift the car up with your floor jack high enough to get the ramps under the tire. Jack stands are great but sometimes get in your way when you are doing engine or exhaust work.

ALWAYS remember to block your rear tires before lifting up your car, do NOT trust your parking brake to hold the car

I use adjustable 3 ton jack stands (20 bucks at WalMart). Also NEVER jack your car up in gravel only stupid people like me try that. Luckily the jack fell over before I got under. And yes stuff behind the back wheels helps.

yeah, I am going to lift the car up this week, I have ramps but the car is too low for them, so I am going to use some wood to drive the car on first then the ramps. and next off I have no parking brake on the car, so bricks will have to do it for me.
