A leak from that area is generally a rear main seal on the engine if it is engine oil that is leaking. If it is ATF then it is the front transmission seal.
In either case I would doubt that the lifting you did would cause either of those to leak.
Now if that vehicle has the oil cooler lines running up to the radiator then you may have a leak at the adapter that the oil filter and those lines go into. This adapter is notorious for the rubber oring to shrink and start leaking oil. Sometimes this oil runs down under the torque converter cover and drips out the drain hole or gets sprayed around by the moving torque converter which makes the oil seem like it is leaking everywhere in that general area.
The key is to inspect the adapter very carefully for oil around the base of where it meets the block.
