Strut rod bracket placement 1970

Welded in my strut rod brackets today and thought I would share some information if anyone was interested. I could not find any information as to the measurements or locating points for the original location points so I took measurements before disassembly. when all was said and done I see FORD was not that precise in making things symmetrical but have installed them where I ​thought they should be from my original measurements. I decided to make them 3-3/8 side to inner edge of hole, 6 1/2 front to edge of hole, and 20" edge to edge from bracket to bracket inner edge of hole 50 degree angle from support.
