Re: 1987 Chevrolet K10 to K20 and repairs

wire brushed the frame where the steering box mounts and die checked it for cracks. Sure enough I had one and believe this might be where I was hearing a popping noise in the front end while flexed

Drilled the cracks and welded them up. Got these steering box support brackets from roughcountry.com when I ordered the lift.

Painted it and bolted the steering box back into place. I didnt get any pictures of it but I pulled the rotor to change out wheel bearings on this side and rebuilt the hubs for both sides.
