Question HEIDTS CROSSMEMBER MEASUREMENT FOR A 1956 F100

Took my 56 truck completely apart .took all the springs off and cut out the engine crossmember and transmission crossmember about two years ago . now I want to install a HEIDTS IFS . I need some help on where to line it up. should of thought about this long ago.I know you have to move it forward to line up in the center of the fender opening .If some one can give me a measurement from the edge of the closest crossmember to the forward edge of the HEIDTS crossmember I would appreciate it very much. thanks for any help
