Default Two Post Lift

The Driver's Manual for my '63 Suburban dictates that the jacking points are under the lower control arm, and the rear axle. I'm interested in getting a two post lift, and trying to figure out how to span that distance (about 10 feet) with support arms. Anyone done this? The C Channel frame already bears a bend where someone tried putting a jack under the side so that looks like a no-go.

Personally I would see if the lift would go on the frame where there is a cross member. I believed it would be able to support the truck.
