Keeping the RC on stands for extended period of time

I'm pulling the forks and shock for service and need some ideas for supporting the rear end while the shock is off. I have Pitbull stands for the front and rear. Front is no problem but with the rear shock removed, I need some ideas for supporting the bike from the bottom so I don't crush anything. Hoist is not possible. I'm thinking of simply using a couple of jackstands with a 2X4 between them or a floor jack with a 2X4 on top. I just need to make that whatever I do is stable because the shop will have my parts for a week or so.

What would you recommend?

Thanks,
Mike
