    stupid question but for those who have had their frame crack do you see it from the top or bottom when looking at the steering box? I checked mine last night and I'm either lucky or I'm not looking in the right place for the crack(s). Hopefully I'm just lucky...

    I'm good then. I had my daughter turning the wheel full lock to full lock while I watched (I was trying to narrow down my loose steering) and the box never moved from the frame. I suppose I should do that frame brace kit though to keep her intact...
