Looks like you are off to a good start. Most people flatten out the rear mounts and make a bracket that attaches to the frame. As you have yours, and as they are removed from the car, they are on an angle. I made brackets keeping them on an angle with hole large enough to adjust the rear mounts for proper alignment.

Edit--Adding pic. This is a 1985 frame and will look different than yours, but the concept is the same.

the frame it was rolled and I had to heat it and turn it so it was straight but I'm not sure if I had a cut that section so I can make the angle I know it has to be 33 in apart from center bolt center bolt that's where I'm kind of stuck if I should cut that and then box everything or what
