    King pin kit? Do you need new king pins or just the bushings?

    GM dealer has the bushings for I think 20 something each. The spring is prolly /forums/images/icons/smile.gif GM only. Not sure if NAPA has the bushings though. Kinda funny talking about this since I just had mine apart a couple hours ago. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif Did you get the engine in the K5 yet??? Damn that is a sweet sounding engine.

    A GM dealer is a good source for the parts but they can be a little pricey. You may want to try and find a local Dana distributor, like a driveshaft shop. Sometimes it just boils down to who you know but I've found the Dana distributors to generally be cheaper.

    Here are some Dana part numbers to help cut down on any confusion if you find a place.

    41886 - bushing
    620180 - washer
    37300 - spring
    37307 - king pin cap gasket
    706150X - lower king pin bearing kit

    Good luck!

    Try Randys Ring and Pinion. I remember seeing an ad somewhere I think they had a 60 kingpin rebuild kit. I would think they would be cheaper than the Dealer.
