    Had the same problem, same truck. Those brackets are also connected to the cab mounts. Mine got to the point where the cab started to bounce when I hit bumps in the road. You can tell by looking at the body lines. The cab and bed were a good 1/4 to 1/2 off! Brought to my local welding shop and he made me a couple brakets and welded everything up for me. Cost around $350.
