Cab Cracks

Well I found these today. I am going to assume it is because of the lift and springs causing the frame to flex more than usual. These are pictures of the drivers and passengers side rear body mounts on my crew cab (03 cclb, 12" lift) Any suggestions on how to eliminate this (obviously besides removing the lift/springs)

Yup its weird, I havent seen this before either. Guess Im breaking out the welder this weekend. If it cracks again then I think I will be making some sort of reinforcement to run along the bottom of the cab seem and some how the mounting surface.

Judging by the c-channel spot welded to the cab, someone already knew that was a stressed area. What about stop drilling the crack, cleaning up the surface corrosion, use weld through primer, then do a lap patch?

Frame flex is cool until you find those cracks.

in the first picture where the crack is, it's not a repair, it's a sub frame of sorts to stiffen up the bottom of the cab in that area.

The "someone" I referred to would be the engineers that designed the truck.
