coupe on three stands

Have the coupe up on stands today bleeding the clutch, brakes and some other things.
With the coupe, the rear only sets on one of the rear stands. I still leave the second stand in place even though it is not in contact.

Well, it comes down to this:
  1. the floor isn't level
  2. the jackstands aren't all the same height (including adapters)
  3. the chassis is tweeked
