Axle Bracket Fit-up Precision

I'm doing research for my axle swap, and in spite of much searching I haven't been able to find what kind of tolerances for positioning are used when welding brackets onto axles. Is plus/minus a 16th of an inch good? Super anal? Super sloppy?

Thanks in advance.

I've seen factory mounts off over 1/4".

1/16-1/8 is good enough. It's not an airframe.

Control arms will make up any difference.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

I try to get mine as symmetrical as possible. +/- 1/16" is good.
