front control arm dimensions

So i searched front control arms and read all 21 threads, but I didn't see this anywhere.
I've currently got MM fox length control arms on my car, and sold my stock ones. Im looking to make some new control arms my self (nothing against the MM arms, I love them, and theyre great, just going a different route)

Before I dig and and grab measurements/make a fixture, can anyone provide any of these measurements? not trying to step on anyone's toes, just figured someone may have them and be willing to share.

the only thing is I meant for the bottom horizontal measurement to be from the center of the ball joint to the center of the pivot, not the edge.

Nope, just looked.

Page 97 has lengths; Stock 13 in, 87-88 T-bird 13 3/4 in, SVO 14 in.

More info on altering crossmembers.

Two out of three are incorrect. Mathis explained some of the problems with the book on CC years ago. More or less he didn't get to see the final proof before it was published, then had no authority to correct things.

Try this post. From a Ford engineer and I have confirmed the data.
