They all do it, the only way to fix it is to weld in a metal plate

nope... but im sure we have all seen what it looks like before... thing is why do some do it early and others dont... ya would think that a lowered car would do it sooner as it may put more strain on the chasis...

The vertical pillars where your front doors close against i.e where they latch. They usually crack in line with the base of the windows...
