Have you measured the distance from the frame bolt holes to the trans mount holes?
You should also be able to look up in the service manual the four corner spots to measure from, drop a plumb bob down on the concrete floor, mark where the point hits the concrete floor, then measure the marks....
What really stood out on my Truck was the fan sat in the fan shroud crooked..........

Got the tank self etched primed and painted satin black. Also,did my first weatherpak connection on my fuel hat. Apparently e85 requires a "liquid proof" seal. Pretty cool connector,even though the crimpers were $32.

I wouldn’t sweat it. Sometimes I just like to go into the garage, have a beer, and look at it.
