    The frame cracking by the steering box is a common issue with our trucks. You should check out ORD and see about getting one of these products. That is if it's not that bad yet. Sounds like maybe you might need more then a brace if I am picturing what you are saying right. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    The steering box thing is very common. Get it fixed ASAP!!
    The kit can be purchased here. Not sure on the shim I'm sure it prolly has happened to somebody else though. I think echobit sells shims. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    the crack is very small easily fix going to order the kit for it but i need to find the right shims cause those ones came with the superlift 8 inch kit so i'm not sure what degree they are or anything

    when i fix the frame i am going to replace the box cause i gives me a bad wobble and the steering wheel will change places after a hard day of wheeling
