I had to add the proverbial front shot.
The crossmember is easily seen here. The actuator attachment point can just be seen about 8" above the right side of the crossmember. Although it appears only one bracket attaches the actuator, in reality there are two. Total distance from the actuator attachment point to the pivot point is about 14". The more distance you have here the easier the actuator can move the assembly and the longer it will last.
