When I work on tires I put the jack under the lower ball joint area in front and on the axle or under the spring pak on the rear.
For Oil changes it really doesn’t matter where you lift it but as stated, "always use a jack stand for safety sake”.
Sorry should have said that I usually use a floor jack in these positions…
I said the lower ball joint, what I should have said was "as close to the tire as possible” on the lower link.
What does the Manual state is the proper jacking position...
