When jacking up a client's car to leave on axle stands, I will always try to position the stands as close to the hub as is stable to do. This keeps the weight of the car where it would be if it were supported by a wheel. Also, keep the axle stand as low as it can be to minimise movement/tilting. You don't say if it is completely being raised or if it is only one side/end, but the overall principle is the same.

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
