Whose instructions are you using? Chances are, they have a tech line, and can interpret their instructions for you.

I personally would only use their instructions on placement as a rule of thumb to guage your own measurements by, and would not weld the brackets in beforehand. I would assemble the powertrain first, use a couple of floorjacks and a cherry picker to move the assembly around IN THE FRAME .....WITH THE TUB on the frame to check YOUR INDIVIDUAL TRUCK's clearances to the steering box, exhaust manifolds, firewall and floorboards, etc.

Much less likely to end up grinding the brackets back out when you discover that you 'overlooked' something!

Best
