Rad support is pretty beefy, when I would jack up the front end I'd do it from there.

I'd personally wrap my tow hook or tie down strap or chain or whatever you're using around the control arm.

Wouldn't that mess with your alignment?

Shouldn't. The control arm is fixed. No adjustments. You're only pulling it while in neutral.
