Was Aaron refering to a live (solid) axle car? I've only heard differentials refered to as "pumpkins" on live axles. In any event, I also jack the front at the cross-member, then put the jackstands at the jacking points. I would not recommend jacking the rear from the differential on an IRS car -- I also wouldn't trust a tech who says that it's OK to do so.

Just my 2 cents... arguably worth that.
