Bull nose stair sagging


Have a bottom bull nose stair that is sagging. Seems that the problem may be the riser. The thread is beginning to develop a hair line crack. I have opened up the back of the stair and if anyone could please give me some idea on how I may sure up the stair. Thanks Madness

I had to place wood under the tread to keep the stair level. The last picture is the back which as you can see is a tight squeeze (in the garage surrounded by cinder blocks.

I really don't see a way to reinforce the step other than shims glued between the riser and tread. I don't think that will solve the cracking though. I wish I could help you but I really don't know what to tell you. I don't think you want to tear the step out and reinstall but that is the only way I know of to fix it right.
