Rotary Lift

We bought a two post rotary lift for our garage last week (chassis type). I cant wait to get up undereath the 90 and see what's leaking.
I have looked in our "Vehicle Lifting Guide" and it says that there is no safe way to lift the Defender without using a drive on type lift. I lifted it up the other day using the lifts frame support arms and it seemed fine. Anyone lift owners have any advice?? I would hate to have an accident.

It is not hard, just make sure that there is not crap/undercoat on the bottom of the frame, they like to slip . . .

On my friend's 2 post lift, I put the front pads underneath the retangular bracket near the sway bar mounts. On the rear, I put the pads underneath the trailing arm mount shroud. Did this many times, seems alright to me.

Not much, but I will owe you a toy and when I see one I'll send it to you! I actually think I figured it out, but you might have a better idea than me. For the rear, I put the lift supports on the frame right behind where the trailing links attach to the frame.
For the front, I put the lift supports right inside the three sided rectangle looking thing that is part of the frame (right behind the front links).
Does this make sense?

Also, do you guys run without swaybars? I had them off for a while and then put them back on a while back. I don't think I can tell a bit of difference.

Sometime when we get to grab a beer together then.

Be safe with the lift.
