Hey all , brand new here . Also brand new to working on cars myself . Just curious what the safest place to lower the car onto jack stands would be for a 2018 Optima ? Jacking it up isn’t an issue just not sure where to rest it on .

Same area where you jack it up.
If I'm going to use stands, I'll Jack it up under the control arms and put the stands under the rails.

Kia Optima: General Information / Lift And Support Points


Lift And Support Points

Tire Wheel Automotive tail & brake light Car Vehicle


When heavy rear components such as suspension, fuel tank, spare tire, tailgate and trunk lid are to be removed, place additional weight in the luggage area before hoisting. When substatial weight is removed from the rear of the vehicle, the center of gravity may change and can cause the vehicle to tip forward on the hoist.




•​
Since each tire/wheel assembly weights approximately 30lbs (14kg), placing the front wheels in the luggage area can assist with the weight distribution.

•​
Use the same support points to support the vehicle on safety stands.



1.Place the lift blocks under the support points as shown in the illustration.



2.Raise the hoist a few inches (centimeters) and rock the vehicle to be sure it is firmly supported.



3.Raise the hoist to full height to inspect the lift points for secure support.
