Have owned 2 1973 Corvettes and both have had frame problems. The same A-frame on the the drivers side has broken loose from the frame. Actually it is the ear from the frame to the A-frame. Both were purchased and recognized by the hard pull in the steering. Neither Vettes were wrecked.

The first '73 was a small block T-top. The second is a Big block roadster.

Has this happened to other owners?

I have owned 67, 2-73's, 82 and only had frame problems with '73s.

I just grind the cracks down and weld it up. I just find it strange that this happened on both '73s.

That's interesting. There is an article in this months Car Craft about the poor welds in factory frames. No idea why that would only happen on your 73's though.
