Yeah, it would. If there were an accurate center point on top of the housing.
Actually, Jim, I was thinking about using some point on the bottom of the differential housing. Like maybe a pencil mark transfered on to the bottom center of the gasket surface. Then measure out to each top of the tubes from there. Another method could be to measure from the bottom left hand side cover bolt hole to the top end of the left tube and then from the right bottom hole to the top of the right tube. I'm assuming that the cover bolt holes are at equal distances around the cover so if those two measurements are the same then the axle assembly would be straight, at least to the accuracy of your tape measure (about 1/32").
