I just installed the Marlin Highsteer kit on my rig about 500 miles ago using the heavy duty steering box mount and i noticed yesterday that there is a hairline crack around half of the frame between where the steering box mount and the front spring hanger, that was not there before. Im thinking the heat from welding it on may have weakened the frame in that area. What would be the best way to reinforce this area to keep it from cracking more? Just to weld up the crack, or put another plate on? I will be making a front bumper for it soon so I was already thing of making a stronger front spring hanger, especially since I will be adding a winch. Your thoughts?
