weld the uppers, on the same plane as the lowers if you dont want any caster gain etc.
basically above the lower mts but forward enough to work for you.

personally I would only use the adjustable uppers if allowed to they are great. Lefthander sell them with a template for mounting the 4 brackets.

If you want caster gain etc built in your car put them parallel with the frame rail.

also mount level for zero anti dive.

I know on chevelle it's 20 degree.
Metrics I'm not sure, I've seen them both ways. I've seen Tim Donlinger just use the bone stock upper mount, witch looks like 0 d.
Bob Pierce runs 0 d but runs strut type a-arms. So I don't know but I would set it up same plane as bottoms.
