chevy suspension/rebuild

Am finally getting around to doing something about my front suspension on 1951 Chev coupe. the left fron wheel was almost leaning on the frame. Motors manual says to position the lower/inner control arm shaft using gauge J-3184 "which fits into the shaft bracket hole". Not having that tool, and not knowing anyone who might even remotely think of having that tool, is here another way, or easy way to position that lower control arm shaft in the control arm? I imagine that positioning the shaft and bushings probably has alot to do with correct alignment, toe-in, toe-out, king pin angle, etc. Any help on this is greatly appreciated. My tech manual is 1956 edition Motors Auto Repair Manual (page 482)
