    1) Have weight just slightly on frame
    2) Use a drift pin or long bolt you can bang and pry with...or a round pry type bar
    3) Using a side to side motion on the steel frame mount move body back and forth as desired... slightly tighten down bolts as you go... should line up pretty easily

    Normally they dont get that far out... if it is you might need to lift off and reposistion using long bolts to capture it on the way down in at least 4 places

    And to make sure it's centered correctly put a 2x4 against the side of the tire so it contacts both the bottom and top of the sidewall and measure over to the fender lip. Obviously you want both rears sides to be the same and both fronts to match, but the front won't necessarily match the back.
