If you are trying to measure and position a frame, use a "tram", which is a specialized frame measuring tool. If, though, you are looking for specific frame dimensions, off of each vehicle, so that you can design a "composite" frame, you will need a copy of the Factory Service Manual for each vehicle (the diagrams are therein). In either case, if you need somebody on site to walk you through this, and explain your options, please use YourMechanic’s service request page to book an appointment and the responding certified mechanic will address all of your concerns. Please let us know if you have further questions as we are always here to help you.
