1971 Torino Radiator Support

Folks, my radiator support is sprung forward what looks like 3/4" (see circle on pic). I am planning to use a friction jack to pull the rad support back into place. I think I can use the radiator brackets to determine the right distance, but want to bounce it off of you. The bottom radiator brackets mount to both the radiator support and the front crossmember, right? I took some pics before disassembly, and that's what it looks like, but the angles are not right to be 100% sure, so thought I'd ask for a second opinion. If the brackets only mount to the front rad support, can someone tell me what the distance is between the rad support and the front crossmember specifically at the lower radiator bracket mounting holes? If I do not get it right, it will affect my lower valence fit.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Well, the Keysco friction jack worked well. I actually over did it the first time, reversed the jack head and pushed it back to where it is supposed to be.
