Not a stupid question!!! Look for a steel crossmember ( not the radiator support) there should be a frame under the front that will support the jack!! Then place jack stands under the car ( at the frame or pinch welds) to hold the car while you work.
Do one side at a time and e SAFE!!! I mark the bolts on the struct tower to get the alignment close and then have car aligned...Good Luck!
