i have installed an OEM MII in my 32 roadster, and i have cut the strut rod and welded on a tube that holds a bushing to gain some room arround my engine. but the mountings are still on the inside of my frame
i think you should re do it to get the pivot point right, because unless you have a very stiff front suspension that hardly mooves you are going to get some funny allignment changes throughout the travel of the wheel. The easiest is propably to buy a triangulated lower contrill arm that elimitates the strut rod. that will also loose some of the sloppyness the SOFT strut rod bushings add.
