I changed out my front shocks awhile back, Want to remove my rear shocks, (1) can I leave the front tires on ground and use some jack stands rearward? (2)or can I put the front tires on ramps and use a few jack stands midway and to the rear? Or the whole car needs jack stands? thanks

A tip for the front shocks, just break the nut and stud off if they're rusted. Place a 1/2" impact socket with a 6" extension on the top of the nut on the front shock, while pushing slightly downward rock it back and forth until it snaps off. It's actually pretty easy to do and quicker if they rusted on.
