Here are a couple of links that will help you.
This is a set of instructions in PDF from TCI that shows the C/L of the crossmember, measured from a bumper bracket hole.

This is a link to a PDF showing frame dimensions and axle C/L from Wescotts Auto.

http://www.wescottsauto.com/pdf2/FR-6.pdf

All of the MII front ends that I have done had the spindle C/L in the center of the crossmember.

One word of caution though, many of the old cars had the sheetmetal not lining up with the axle C/L, so you may want to check your axle location with the front fenders mocked up in position. Nothing worse than getting a front end all welded in and having the wheels not centered in the wheelwell.



Hope this helps, mikey
