I usually just walk over to the side, bend down and lift. Although as I get younger, that is becoming less of an option. I’ll get Lambert to do it for me ;-)

Rear at the differential; front at the plate right behind radiator 

I have use it on the sides on the rails that run from front wheels to rear axle.  Not sure if this is the best way but it has worked for me.

My original jack has not been able to lift the car for years.
Still have it, but have relied on a floor jack for small driveway jobs.
Typically the car gets most bottom stuff when it's up in the shop.

My question is for those who prefer using a floor jack, what 
locations do you position the floor jack to lift the car safely?
The rear differential? 
Where in the Front?
Have you ever used the floor jack to lift the car from the side?

It might be a no-brainer, but figure I may think I know the best, and then 
again better to get more than one opinion in case I am approaching it unsafely.

Thanks everyone for the advice.  I see your points.  The lift fittings on my Bs are in good shape so I'll stick with the original.  Though, it does take a little work to lower it to the level to fit in the tube and then raise it  without contacting the door.
