Need rear UCA Bracket measurements

I need a favour, I have removed my old brackets as they were tearing off the frame, I have since patched and reinforced the area but do not know where to put them back on (the old hole has been closed over and would rather leave it like that for further reinforcement). I need the measurement from front leg of the bracket that attaches to the frame to the bolt hole. My aftermarket brackets are bit shorter but I should be able to figure out exactly where to put it.

Alternatively, the measurement from the LCA Hole to the UCA along the X-axis will suffice as well.
Thanks!

I'll get you the dimension from the bare frame I have, but the only two you are concerned with are related to the bolt hole. I'll get the distance up from the lower control arm hole and front or back along the frame to some other common point.

That would be great, aybe back inner corner of frame since the gas tank is out, it is easily accessible and/or from middle of back TC Skid bolt hole? Assuming it isn't a pre-2003 frame, I would assume the location of the holes are a little off? I can't remember if they are different

The bracket is angled so the dimensions are to the center of the bolt hole closest to the frame. The distance up from the center of the LCA bolt hole is 4 5/8" and the distance forward from the INSIDE face of the rear crossmember is 40". Cross those two points and you're golden.

The easy way for the vertical measurement is to clamp the mount in place with a bolt sticking out of the lower and a bolt in the upper. Measure from the top of one to the top of the other and account for diameter differences.
