We know that the rear leaf spring Datum Line is usually higher at the rear of leaf spring in a car. How does one determine the recommended height to mount the rear eyelet? Is there a certain percentage we are looking for?

Reason I am bringing this up. I am in the process of replacing the rear frame rails in an old '62 Falcon. I currently have the front leaf eyelet mounted (so to speak, for the third time). The pinon had the leaf mounts welded at the usual mustang angle of 3*. Would I be correct thinking, I should focus on the differential pinion angle, instead of the rear mounting height?
