    I just bought a ST 7.5 and the mount that came with it is from a 97 F350 SD. I am installing it on a 90 F150 that is lifted about 4 inches and am going to fabricate/modify the F350 mount to fit to the F150. Because nothing is standard and a F150 mount won't work I need to get a correct hight to set this thing up. The fabrication part isn't a problem, just where to set it up to.
    Does anybody have a ground to centerline of the slide in round tubes measurement from a truck that is working well? I can fine tune it with the lower A-frame pins but I need to get it close to start with.

    The critical measurment is center of the hinge pin holes. They need to be nine and a half to ten amd one half inches.

    Thanks Basher. I do have 3 hinge pin holes on the truck side of the EZ mount so 10" to the middle hole?
