Lower control arm mount - question about angled or flush?

So my previous owner snapped off the passenger side control arm mount to the front axle and did a horrible job of reattaching it. I've currently got my front end out to get it regeared and once I got it out I realized that the two mounts were slightly angled and not sitting flush on the axle. Even the one that appears to be stock and never modified.

I've already got a pair of stronger mounts that I ordered from Quadratec but they don't appear to be angled or offset at all. My question is will these new ones work okay? Do I need to get them welded on slightly offset ? I'm concerned that once I go to bolt everything back up that I won't be able to get things to line up properly....

I can go take pictures if that would help.

I just bought new mounts for my 97 and will be welding them on soon. My plan is to install them just as they came from the supplier, which is straight. I was wondering, did you find the answer to your questions? If so what was the outcome? I dont want to find out later I missed something.

Ended up giving them to the shop that did the work and just having them weld them on straight up with no further instructions. Everything went back together fine... I think they are cut properly to make everything work.
