You jest, they are taking all the weight and force of that corner when
crashing over bumps!

I would never jack under the chassis rails, there is nothing for the jack to
'lock on' to unlike the rear edge of the cross-member and because the angles
and distances change as you raise the car you always get some movement and I
would hate that to turn into a major slippage.

Can't remember if this has been mentioned yet, but as always wherever you
jack it is only a prelude to placing axle stands before working underneath.
