Measurements were taken to ensure the hats were parallel to each other and the clamped were tightened. This arrangement was transferred to the frame (a great idea that I’ll have to try on my next IFS install). The inside marks on the hats (included by EHR) were aligned with the axle centerline on the frame. The notched side of the hats was placed facing aft so that there was a slight angle to the rear (to match that of the new crossmember). The measurements and alignments were checked yet again and the hats tack welded into place.
