Go to Summit or Jegs and order the Brackets. Clean up the 9" and set up the angle and side to side measurments to squair the rearend under the car. Spot weld it in place then come back and weld everything up. Measure, measure, measure then weld! Use a pinion angle tool and remember the TRUCK will need to sit on the rear springs. Try jack stands front and rear and measure the frame height to level. Hope I didn't confuse you.

For the amount of time, money, and energy you spend. You might want to price out a Moser bolt in housing. All the angles are preset and there is no chance of warping the axle tubes. Then just swap everything into the new housing.

Just an idea I had the other day (really somebody else came up with it)anyway why not leave the ford perches on (just for now) and mach up your new spring perches off those just to get the right angle of the dangle.
I was thinking of doing some thing like that for my rear end it is a ford 9'' set up for a early camaro that will be in a BIG BLOCK 55 Chevy just a thought
