jack point question
Took my Sport in today to get a noise looked at that my clutch was making. A tech came out with a small floor jack and lifted the front of the Jeep so that both front wheels were off the ground about 6 inches. He placed the jack in the center of the axle just left of the differential, like if you were looking at the Jeep from the front. The contact point of the jack to the axle was about a 1 inch circle. Could lifting from this position hurt the axle? I was told to lift from the control arm mounts. I am fairly new to Jeeps and apologize if the question seems ignorant. Thanks for any answers.
