Wow. It looks like it would work, but I would be ashamed to send that out if I was a professional fabricator. Call Hi Country and see if they'll send you a new set - express, with a label for you to return those to them.

That really is a pretty poor job. They were made in... ?

Yeah, the same buddy from school who thought they were pretty ****ty offered to weld them up. Now I just need to decide if we go to his place outside of Toronto, or if I cough up the money, and pay for access to the welders up on base.
Was it easy to get the power steering bolts off? I'm thinking I might have some difficulties with it..
Getting them out wasn't a real problem (this is on my 89 Comanche, not a ton of rust issues), back in was a total pain in the butt... the kit I got came with a new inside frame bracket that fits between the steering box and the frame. Getting the holes in the bracket lined up to the bolt holes in the frame and the steering box (all while having the drag link connected) wasn't a lot of fun.
if you are taking off any rusty parts try out the home brew penetrating oil, 50/50 mix of ATF and acetone, i mix it up in a small jar (a very small amount) and apply it with a small artists brush (you dont want to get it on paint) let it sit a few minutes. does amazing things to rusty bolts.
