There is a real simple way to increase rear clearance for a jack, drive the
car on a couple of pieces of 2 X 10 and you can get another 1.5 inches. This
was enough to get a jack under my 100 even with new rear springs. I got a
little fancy and cut a 45 on one end and put a piece of 2 x 2 on the other end
to act as a stop.

Until I got new rear springs if I wanted to raise the entire car I too used
to have to use the two-step method described by John Sims, rasing the front
bit, then jacking the rear, then coming back to the front.
