Storage Question

My 330cic is in for the winter and I have a ton of maintenance to do. I am unsure if I should support the suspension or body with jack stands, it will be on stands for a couple of months. I have never had a unibody on stands for any length of time and being a drop top I want to make sure I dont get any body movement.
Thanks:

Support on chassis, back, middle, front and try to keep doors shut, not suspension as this moves and the body will flex!
