For instance, lower wishbone is solid and (usually) will take weight.
But jack on it in the wrong place (usually around half way along) and it will tilt as the car lifts, tipping jack sideways.

If at anytime you have to jack or support on chassis/body, spread the load. I keep a couple of 12" x 2" x 4" blocks of wood handy specifically for that. As close to box sections as possible if not on them.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
