Ford has had this problem for quite a while, check with your local Ford dealer, they use to make a kit for this problem, but that was years ago, it had a plate that you put on the frame after it was welded up that was drilled for the steering box mounting bolts then you welded it onto the frame reinforcing the frame in that area.
