If you have a real nice smile you can get the measurement sheet from your local body shop. This sheet will show EXACTLY where those holes belong in relation toeachother.

Yes, and it's available as either a CD ($170) or paper through www.helminc.com. CD is the cheaper way to get everything; as paper manuals the Wiring Diagrams and Powertrain/Emissions Diagnosis are separate and the total of the three runs a bit more.

Here's a pic of what you're interested in. <EDIT - I found a better way to post it.> But it looks like you could work either from the back or the front of the axle(or both, for a sanity/consistency check).

Hi Norm,

Is that froma 2008 CD? I have the 2005 CD and the measurement points are different.

Cheers!

Hi Norm,

The frame alignment holes are different and the measurements shown are not all symetrical.

Cheers!

The differences wouldn't happen to be mostly involve the holes along the lateral line that's (1438 + 810) mm aft of the forwardmost holes and what looks like another line of holes about 150 mm behind those, would they?

Hi Norn,

I wish I could tell you but I'm not certain which holes that would be. I looked at my frame misalignment images and the holes refrenced between the 2005 and 2008 CD are different but even the few that are common show different measurements! There are many cross measurements on the 2005 diagram that are asymetrical unlike the 2008 which shows complete symetry side to side. Wierd that they would change the reference points, I guess there are subtle differences in the unibody structures at least between the 05 and 08 cars.

HTH!

Hi Norm,

After looking at them I thing the problem is that in 05 they used different holes for measuring.

HTH!
