upper control arm mounts

i need assistance from a 98+ ranger owner. the truck needs to have stock suspension. it also needs to have coil bucket frame rails.

im looking for the distance between the inside of the upper mounts? (inside the red lines) when i installed the susp. i cranked down the cam bolts to the point where my mounts look like / \ when they should look like this | |. i'm going to attempt to cold re-set the upper mounts to there original position.

Mine measure 2 1/8" inside the brackets.
But they look like they "lean" in a little bit too. I wouldn't worry about it too much as long as your brackets are tight to the steel sleeves in the bushings.
What suspension do you have there?
I'm lowering with the DJM arms later this summer.
