    I have saved up about $140 and I am seriously considering ordering the ORD steering brace kit tomorrow. How many of you are using this kit and has it been sucessful in preventing cracks? Was it easy to install?
    Would it be easy to just fab the same thing up myself (I have a access to a welder)? Does anyone else manufacture a similar product? I would like to get some input before I drop $120+s&h tomorrow.
    Thanx ;)

    I like to save $$ when ever I can so I made my own. before installing it I had welded up the cracks but they ended up cracking again, so I figured it was time for a brace. After the brace was installed the steering felt much tighter since the frame flex was gone, and I still dont have any cracks so its doing something :D
