Re-doing the steering box mount on my '85 truck. Prev owner didnt sleeve the frame so nows the time to fix it. Already looks like he had it shoved all the way forward. But the plates were straight cut at the ends so I cut those off for radiusing. Redoing the whole set up at this point.

Anyone have pics of how the box was mounted OE to the ifs frame?

Are inner and outer frame plates a necessary mod or can I just sleeve the frame, fab up the floating bolt with a sleeve/small inside frame plate, and call it a day?

Thx

Too far north. Too far east.

I would plate both sides. I think some of the current kits even do that. I would also plate back to the rear as much as you can to keep the frame from cracking.
