I’ve replaced the floors, boot and heel board, I did it all in stages so I could use rear subframe to keep things aligned. I need to replace all front panels and toe board. Before I do all this I want to check that the heel board is where it should be.
I plan to drop plumb line and mark on the floor of garage.
I need to level the car to do this.
I can use the front bulkhead cross member for the left to right level at the front
For the rear across the shock mount points
What do I use for front to rear level?

I read through helpful topics on here but can’t see what I need.

How about sticking some subby mounting bolts in the heel board to sit a straight edge on and level that? It's more critical than the top of telescopic dampers.


Front to rear will have no effect on the radius arms at the back. At the front it's the castor angle, which'll need the subframe attached. I think it'd be good enough to have the top of the side members (where the brake hoses go) horizontal.
