is there a method to work out where to attach a bridge to a bass so the intonation will be correct?
im going to try and install seperate single bridges for each string so i can get the string distance right.

thanks

thats risky bro, I've never tried replacing any of mine. You could always just pay someone who knows what they're doing to do it, and hopefully they would let you watch, or deal with the bridge you have

The scale length determines the placement of the bridge. To be honest, you probably shouldn't be doing this if you don't know that.

The scale length for a normal bass is 34", or double the length from the nut to the 12th fret of your bass. That's where you should place the bridge.

well you'd kinda be screwed if you changed to a different style of strings, the intonation would be off again. I'd just stick to using the intonation adjusters on the bridge.... unless your bridge doesn't let you adjust intonation, then you're in a predicament
