I always use 4 stands. ( I NEVER goes under the car without stands. Never.) I jack the car up in the middle, and place 1 of each side on the crossmember. In the rear, itīs the same. Itīs not a problem as you have two wheels ( or stands ) on the other side of the car, so itīs stable anyway.
BUT: Be aware that the body does move/flex while hanging on the stands, meaning the gap in the door get tighter. So if you are careful of your paint, opend your doors before you jack it up ( and donīt close them until the car is back on mother earth ) or tape in the door opening so you donīt ruin your paint.
