I have been told Location 1 is a suitable location to place a jack stand to support the rear end of a 2018 Altima. (Comments supporting or opposing this recommendation are desired.)

Unfortunately, Location 1 is covered by a splash guard.

If Location 1 is a suitable location for a jack stand, is Location 1A (see above) a suitable location to:

1. Lift the vehicle using a pin-in-disc adapter (see below) that would sit in the saddle of the floor jack, or

2. Position a jack stand with an adapter similar to the pin-in-disc adapter for stability?

BTW the rear splash shield is easy to remove but, you do not need to if you want to use a floor jack at the rear center of the vehicle. I have a 2016 Nissan Altima and eventually the jack that comes with the vehicle wears out and I use my floor jack to jack up the whole rear end. I attached 2 pics of that point. And I attached a pic of the front lift point in the center of the vehicle when you want to jack up the whole front end. Use jack stands of course especially if you are going to take off the wheels.
