It's on the jack pad

Those definitely weren't the best videos, unfortunately, but something quick to at least show you guys how it's done

How Stable is that using just the pad?

Once it's under the flat spot on the bottom of the strut's spring seat....it doesn't budge....just like in the video
Take your time with the jack and it won't go anywhere.

The passenger side is easier and I'd start with that side to get the feel for it.

If you want to secure it further though, you can drill a hole in the 2x4 and use the strut bolt & nut to attach it to the swaybar link mounting tab...see here:
