itsreallyconc, I do not think there is a footer at all. I think it is just a slab poured on the ground. The frame is sitting on the slab. The cracks in the slab run from the center of the slab out to the perimeter. If mudjacking would work to raise the slab which is in 3 pieces and make it relatively level, I was planning to support the slab with concrete piers dug down below the frost line and set along the perimeter every so many feet (still need to figure that distance out). But if mudjacking is only going to lift the concrete from the center because there is more weight on the perimeter, then it won't be helpful. That is where my question came from.

Also, can you please explain the screw anchor system w/ foundation clips? I am not familiar with that.

Finally, I added some pictures that will hopefully help.
