Default aftermarket spring perches

04 wj with rotted perches. Will need to replace entire assembly with prefabbed bought from a supplier. Found two that sell them , but I have no idea on making sure they are aligned properly before welding. Has anyone done these and what did you do. Thanks

I draw a rough sketch of the diff and then measure all the spacings and angles and write them in on my sketch. I do a rear and side view sketch to cover my bases and always take a overall picture so you know you are putting them in the correct orientation.

Lots of measuring and a good sketch sounds like the way to go. Still keeping an eye out for a reasonable axle with good mounts. But my front end rides nice and every thing has been done to it already as far as bearings and axles. So would hate to have to change everything over. But price wise the new mounts put me close to a donor axle as far as cost. Definitely need to get this done before any lift I would put in. Probably do everything at the same time anyway. Thanks again.
