    what shape is the actual kingpin in?? is it scarred in any way or does it have a burr maybe on it- they tend to wear uneven also so have you ever replaced the kingpin?? well good luck ryan

    steering arms that eliminate the spring. it gives with big tires bet its a big factor. WFO is the only place I found sellin arms. They want more for the arms even though they require less work to make. So I won't buy those.

    Welderboy's knuckles replace the bushing with a preloaded bearing. Strong knuckles too. $$$ though.

    Sounds posible, I am running 39.5 x 18" boggers and will very soon have the 44"s. I have high/cross over steering allready and I dont want to rebuy the arms.
