Rear Sub Frame Rust Repair

Due to structural rust I am about to rebuild the rear rocker/qtr-panel area and rear subframe mounting area on my '02. I am doing the welding and fabrication myself, with a MIG.On one side rust is only visible from the top (under the seat), but the other side it also shows through on the underbody and the subfrrame is completely rusted off the mounting pad.  I am concerned about maintaining alignment of the subframe mounting pins if I have to fully remove the mounting pads. (However the area where the pin goes through the body is in good shape on both sides.) I have searched the archive and websites on this, have not seen much specifics.

I would like to hear from someone who has done this particular job before--any hints/tips/tricks/cautions/photos and other insight would be very helpful. Thanks in advance
