Re: King pins mot fail

Does the top kingpin 'press' into the bottom one ore just push in? It should be around a 1 ton press fit....also the bushes should be changed together and reamed in line. The spacer normally has a step, but it looks like your lower pin has been machined out and rebushed?? Give me a shout if you need...
