Question Kingpin ?

Putting my front end together, the right side went in fine and the spindle works like it should. The left side is the problem. The spindle is free to a point then gets stiff, it still moves on back and forth but has a tight spot. I have a feeling the pin is bent maybe a .001 or so. Anyone seen this problem before. It still works just has a tight spot. Anyone have the cure out there ?

Default Kingpin Fitment

Duke...I had a somewhat similar situation, but it was related to the chrome axle which from the pictures....I believe you have also.

Some slag or what I would call chrome plating residue had a thicker (high spot) inside the axle where the kingpin fits.

It took serious brake hone work....but all is well. Just honed that one spot.

You might check.

Wink Got it.

Found a burr on the lower bushing, Looked like a SNAFU from installing the bushing after chroming, fixed that and reinstalled, snug but no binding and feels the same as the other side, no slop just a nice fit.

Default Thanks Bob

Duke sorry I did not see the post earlier but the brake hone is the best answer. Sounds like you got it going together. Keep us posted
