There is a lot of variation in the manufacture and alignment if the body and suspension components, that's why they are adjustable. I doubt if any measurement from one car will give anywhere near an accurate figure on another. Mine were set properly a couple of years ago and there is a variation in length from side to side.

Thats a good point lol i hadn't considered that, but yes your right. A friend of mine renovated a Jenson Interceptor a number of years ago and i always remember him complaining about things not fitting or matching the opposite side.
Forgot i was working on a HB. not to confuse the front x member is HC.
