There is a bracket which mounts between the frame and the steering box. The front of it is bolted to the frame with regular bolts. The rear two bolts are huck bolts. As we turn hard right and hard left, it puts a lot of strain on the bracket and mine finally broke at the bend in front of the huck bolts. I got a slight warning when I noticed that the horizontal part of the steering wheel was not horizontal when driving on a straight road. If your steering wheel position while driving on a straight road changes, beware, crawl under and check the bracket for cracks!! I found a welder in Yreka, CA that welded it and added some reinforcement metal.
