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?

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.
