Yes. You're sitting on the strongest part of the subframe there that the car sits on.

Looks like it's a bit late to be asking!

Thanks guys, I thought it was ok just wanted some confirmation, its a while since I've been spannering at this level, yes it is also on jacks.
Finally got springs out for replacement, front strut was pretty corroded into the wheel carrier, ended up taking the whole lot off.
