Question Flex plate 97 4.0

I have a 97 4.0 pushrod motor with the 8 bolt crank and 8 bolt flex plate. The bolt holes appear to be equally spaced. How do you make sure the flex plate is in the correct position to the crankshaft if they have been separated and not marked? I've already put the engine in the truck and it runs fine but seems to have a shake when driving over about 45 mph. I've changed all u joints the carrier bearing new brakes /calipers/rotors/wheel cylinders/shoes etc. Also has new tires and wheels and old tires and wheels did the same thing. Thanks Terry
