Default using jack stands on a 98 V70 XC

I am attempting to diagnose a rear wheel/brake problem. A friend loaned me his hydralic jack and 2 jack stands.

The 98 V70 XC has a specific jack attachment in front of the rear wheel. The hydralic jack fits into the round cup of this jack attachment and lifts securely.

However, when I use the hydralic jack to lift I am left with no room to place the stationary jack stands.

The owners manual tells about other lift points including:
A garage jack can also be placed under the front of the engine support frame and under the reinforced plate in the spare wheel well.
Lifting the rear of the car by the wheel well sounds easy but doesn't look strong enough to lift the whole back of the car.

Does another have a good solution to using a hydralic jack and jack stands?
