    Right at the steering box /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif and i also found that with minor mods to the 73 and newer frame repair kit it can work on a first gen. Now i've got to work on some sort of brace and i think a new cross member.

    How about some more details?

    You had the factory reinforcement plate rivited on there right?
    Where did it crack?...how long were the cracks?
    What did you have for a steering dampner?

    I am worring about mine as well...I wish someone made a bolt in brace for a 1st gen.(hint hint)

    "If you build it they will come."

    I would without a doubt buy a brace if you made one!
    I am sure there are other people that would get in line as well.
