The last shot is looking from the right rear bumper forward.
Once you get the sub floor off the frame it will droop a bit. The trick is to make sure that the new sub floor is dead level when you bolt it down. The pictures are fulcrum points I believe. It happens when the frame bounces up and down. If the sub floor fails then the frame bounces more violently. My solution was to box those areas by welding C channel in those areas like this []. If you want pics I can snap a couple, just did it this weekend.

Not sure I understand what you've done. I currently have c-shaped channel (1 1/2 x 5 x 1 1/2) Are you suggesting boxing in the channel or adding another channel to it (3 x 5 x 3)? Photos would be good!
