Default HP 44 in an XJ

I'm just curious on where to place the spring and the c/a mounts on my axle, so it is centered under my cherokee. Its is staying full width, i am not narrowing it, it is also the 3/4 ton hd 44. links and suggestions would be of help, i havent turned up too much worth anything yet

measure between inner c's divide by 2 there is the center
do the same with the old axle.
measure out to all brackets.
transfer to new axle.
do that again. (measure twice)

another good idea is to build a jig out of something like 1/4" rod with bolts at each bracket/bucket. this way everything will stay lined up with each other making it easier to take in and measure
