Is there a way to make sure that the rear housing is centered front to back and left to right? When I put it back in the car I just snugged the bolts down to hold it in place. Now I am trying to finish up all the loose ends and I want to torque this thing down. Any tips would be helpful. TIA, Jeff

You really can't screw it up. The leaf springs should have a centering pin(bolt)& the shock/clamping bracket has a hole in it to fit over the pin. That should center it left/right & fore/aft. Hope this helps.

That I did see, however the pin is somewhat smaller than the hole in the plate. this appears to allow for some discretion as the final location.

True it is not a snug fit, but centering the bolt in the hole will suffice & the most you could be off is a .0160 if you didn't bother checking its' center anyway.
