The pads in the center under the engine and on the diff is for jacking only. The 4 pads by the wheels are for jacking or jack stands.
So lift the front of the car using the center pad under engine and put stands behind the front tires on the pads. Then lift the rear using the diff pad and place stands on the pads in front of the rears.
Depending on how low your jack is, you may have to lift one front corner first and support it in order to fit the jack under the front pad.
