Requires removing rivets for trans crossmember, then this bracket bolts to your frame using those existing holes, and requires drilling three new holes and reaming out the existing holes.
The upper rod end requires a 9/16 hole
F26 and F35- all other mounting bolts and holes are 1/2"
F25- the three new holes you need to drill are for 7/16" bolts and you will ream out the existing holes for 1/2" bolts
On F26 and F35, the new holes that you need to drill are the vertical holes on the bottom flange of the frame towards the inside of the frame. the F25 frames have less material here so for f25 applications, the holes are closer to the outside of the frame rail and within the area the bottom rod end goes. I include a drilling template to make thrilling easy, but installation of the bracket is a little tricky with the limited access for a wrench (but it's doable)
When you set up the links and rod ends, there should not be more than 1" of thread showing. In most applications, there will be 1/2" to no thread showing on the top link, and about 3/8" to 1/2" showing on the bottom rod end.
Here is a rough guide to get you started (this isn't close to an alignment but it will save some guess work:
All applications: bottom rod end should show 3/8" to 1/2" of threads
F25A / F35A / X35A: top rod end should show 1/8" of threads
F26A (highboy) / F25B / F35B / X35B: top rod end should show 5/8" of threads
