I have a 1995 F-150 Eddie Bauer extended cab 5.8L With a 3inch body lift and 4inch suspension lift. Running 35x12.5 BFG TAs and there is a crack by the steering box as well as the snapped steering stabilizer bracket. It keeps breaking so how do I get it fixed permanently or is it a no fix situation? Truck only has 89k on the engine and all else is in good shape...

In my opinion, I would try welding the crack. Replace the broken parts and see if it happens again.

Anyone else have a better idea?
