Its about as hard as convincing a blonde that the moon really IS made of cheese Its not hard at all, theres alignment holes on the frame and body and also some measurements on my site http://home.sport.rr.com/cdjrracing/f-bodyframe.htm

Exactly, use the alignment holes on the center mounts and also do some cross measuring all the way back to the leaf spring perches just in case the factory didn't jig the car properly during assembly. I've seen many times where people didn't align the subframe and then fought with the sheetmetal alignment and also front bumper, if the subframe is square with the body then the sheetmetal will align easily and also the front wheel alignment.
