On the Chevy Suburban 2007 to 2014 as well as the Silverados, Sierras and Yukons, to jack up a front wheel, on each side you could jack the frame here and put a safety stand nearby. You could also jack underneath the control arm and put your safety stand here.

If you wanted to lift both wheels at once, you could jack underneath the front cross member here and then put the safety stands, again, under the frame a little further back. You do not want to jack up on your axle. You do not want to jack up your transmission pan and I would prefer the front cross member. I would not jack up this rear orbital cross member.

To the rear, your spare tire jack has a little detent here that it goes in, but if you're looking to just jack up one wheel, you could jack up under this bracket. If you wanted to jack up under both wheels, you can carefully position your jack underneath the corner of the chuck of your rear end, jack it up and then you can place your jack stands just in front of the brackets on the frame here. If you wanted to support your whole rear end for any reason, again, you could jack up underneath the center and put jack stands under the shock mount brackets.
