Help checking the lower engine mount and using jack stands and hydraulic jack???

  1. Either I get some help from you guys or I go to a shop and have it done. I
    think I can check the top mount myself. I just need to swing by a hardware
    store and get a 15mm deep socket. I did a run-through of the procedure last
    weekend (jacking up the car, etc). The creaking noise is worrysome. I just
    need to know what is involved in checking the lower engine mount. My Haynes
    manual doesn't give all the steps. I guess removing the tire and removing all
    that tire well paneling is necessary?

    Speaking of jacking up the car....
    What is the proper use of jack stands and hydraulic jacks on a 99 SC1? My car
    has a soft coating on the underneath (some sort of rust proofing?) and I'd like
    to not damage it if at all possible. I'd like some guidance on using a
    hydraulic jack (can't stand that 'screwy' Saturn jack) and jack stands. So,
    some tips please? Placement is what I'm getting at here.

    Thanks dudes!
