installing leveling kit, where to support truck?

This weekend i'm going to be installing the bds leveling kit and bilstein shocks. Where are you guys supporting the truck from? I'm going to be using blocks as i don't have jack stands that are tall enough.

You can try either the frame rail right behind the radius arm mounts on the frame and/or the crossmember/crash bar that is right behind the front bumper.

Is the front diff a safe place to lower the front axle?
