Weld on disk brake mounts?

This is for a ford 9" The mounts have threaded holes in them already for the axle retaining plate bolts. I'm just wondering how to mock this up so I know where to weld them. A guy at work says it not real critcal because the rear calipers float. any help or pictures would be helpfull.

Thanks

calipers

It depends on your calipers The ford designs from the 70's get rusty and will wear out one side of the rotor, the 4 piston KH Mustang ones on my 40 ford spindles are fixed, Most kits have instructions on how to shim the mounts for best operation

yeah theres no destructions and there for GM calipers. The mounts have threaded holes in them for the axle retaining plate bolts but they don't fit flush against the flange so I'm guessing I'll set them up where the bolts fit and tack them and go from there. Thanks

do you have the whole kit?if so set it all up
maybee with spacers on the bolts(you said it doesnt fit flush)
are the kit and the axle both 9"?
if you mock up the whole thing then you will see where to weld
why do you want to weld if it bolts on?
