Hardware is on a distinguished road

Well, connecting to the rockers would be okay if the load was spread out over more vertical area. The current mounting system has the each step attached with only two bolts close to the top of the arms so the tendency is to pull or rotate the bolts out and up (the sheet metal bulged out below the bolts).

Two attachment points per arm (total of four for each step), spread out over say, 8-10 inches vertically would likely solve this issue.
