tuff call.I'd have to say if you adjusted all the gaps and set it all up with the old ones then go ahead and put it all together with them in and replace them when once everything is screwd in and it all fits nice but you probably should replace all the body mounts before you start welding,did you put holes (punched or drilled) everywhere you need a plug weld? and make sure the mating surface's are clean?
Dont forget,it ALL has to be screwed back together and the door gaps checked before you weld anything,The common mistake is bracing the jambs without adjusting the gaps first,so if its braced with a sagging door it'll still have a sagging door when your done ,thats why you always get a good fit and good gaps all the way around before you start the job.If you forgot to gap the door it wont be to late to fix it if you put it all together with drill screws and check it..once it's welded it's final so be sure its right...
