Coil-rite installation

Just picked up the Firestone coil-rite air bag kit and have a quick question that I could some some help with.

Question: Wondering the safest place to put the jack stands? Can I jack up the axle, support the rear on jack stands directly on the frame, and then lower the jack to allow the spring to decompress?

Jack stands

I would use the same place where the service shops use.. Usually 4 flat spots on the frame

I'd lift it up so that the coil springs as much as possible to make it easier to get the coil rites in and please post lots of photos...

Follow up: After a year with the coil-rite's not a problem at all. I didn't take any photos but installation is pretty easy. You really have to jamb them into the coils but it's really a pretty quick job. I have a dual motorcycle rack that I throw on the back once in a while. They're very small bikes (old Honda CT's) but these air bags help quite a bit.
