A jig may work for some people, and im sure its been done in the past but its not the best way of doing it. It's very common to see even stock ford 9"s not aligned perfectly, a jig would return your axle to its original location which may or may not be correct. The correct way is to bolt on your 3rd member. A long bar slides through it, then couplers slide on to the bar and fit into the axle bearing locations this holds the tubes in alignment with the 3rd member.
