Mounting Strut Rods & Bushings

I took my strut rods off a while ago and made some progress rebuilding the entire front end's suspension but like the scatter brain that i am i forgot to mark where it was mounted to the subframe to keep the wheels somewhat aligned until i can get around to having the car aligned.
So... i guess what im looking for is the measurement from the mounting point on the subframe and where it connects on the LCA so i can get them close.

Did you remove the nut on the backside of the crossmember side bushing? If not, you don't have to worry about it being too far out. It'll be close enough to drive to a shop.

On mine, from where the threads start, I count 4 threads before the nut.

I did the same thing. You can sorta eyeball the alignment your self but it'll drive you nuts that the steering wheel is cock eyed. That's why the alignment from a pro is so worth it, man.
