8.8 bracket weld locations…

After searching and gathering info on the 8.8 axle swap I plan on doing I have a question about welding the brackets at the “neutral position”. Does this mean parallel to the ground once the correct pinion angle is set to the T/C?

Or is it best to level the pinion and the brackets then weld and use CA’s to adjust axle to T/C.

Does the M.O.R.E bracket kit happen to include measurements on where to locate the hardware on the axle? (Anything to save a little time helps!) Cant’ seem to get a hold of them right now from work phone.

Has anybody had any luck contacting this outfit about their ready to bolt in 8.8’s?
8.8 ready to bolt in!

Thanks for the help, Tom

I got some quotes from them...it was more expensive than the d44 that I found...I didn't want a ford axle under my jeep to be honest...I hate ford with a passion so I went with the d44...I can't remember the exact price but I emailed them and got a rather quick response.
