Spring Perch Angle

I'm hoping to weld on the new spring perch's and shock mounts on my newly rebuild 8.8 drive shaft, does any one have a write up for the angles and measurements needed to help me make?

Thanks!

put it under the jeep and tighten up the ubolts before doing any welding, this way you can put it on the ground and make sure the preches are in the right spot before you weld.

Yup, thought of that too! I was hoping to fab it up in my garage before hoging up a friends lift for a long period, but we can do it in an evening I'm sure,

Thanks for the reply!

Ive heard a few people on WF (myself included) that didnt get the angle quite right the first time and had to shim it after welding.

Kinda why I was looking for some geometry majors to chime in, lol

I know a long time ago like last week or better.. I think I read a thread and the guy had an angle compass to help with the setup. we use them when bending conduits in a hydrolic bender to get it right the first attempt.
