Default simple joint tool question

is there an easy way to place a joint where you want it? I have a vehicle Im trying to rig. I have to place two joints connected to each other. If I try to place it in the 3d view, it ends up on the floor, other views - equally extreme places. If I make a joint and place it manually, it becomes its own joint and doesnt connect to the second. there must be something obvious im missing?

you could just place 2 separate joints get them in position then link them via parenting.

or place the joints normally then go to the one you want to position and hit insert then you can move it separately without moving the child bones
