Centering a rear end

Just today, I read an article in the Dec 2012 Car Kulture Deluxe magazine that described installing a Nova rear end in a 51 Chevy. Basically, they took the centerline between the frame rails, hung a plumb bob at that point, and lined up the rear end with the bob. They clamped the spring pads in place and postponed welding them until the body was set back on the frame and the ride height was set. This allows the spring perches to be welded in place with the proper 2 degree offset angle for the driveshaft.

how to properly center a rear end

OK I have a 63 Fairlane. It was upgraded to a V8 and now I have a 9" to replace the old weak "stocker". The problem is I need to weld on new spring pads to the 9" and need to know how to center it properly. I have some good ideas but would like to hear what has worked in the past? FYI, I did write down the measurments of the old "Stocker" but they got wiped off the white board.
