    I bought a spring and bushing kit for my Dana 60 from ORD, but my king pins where not loose. The main reason for me buying the kit was because I knew the springs and bushings where the originals, and could probably use replacing. I was correct. Both of the bushings were cracked, and one of the springs collapsed. I would not expect this kit to fix worn out king pins.

    I bought the kits for both sides but they are still sitting with my other parts on the shelf /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    If you havent seen BillVista's kingpin rebuild over on pirate, you should. It is very good and comprehensive. In it he recomended not replacing the actual kingpin unless you abosolutely had to, as it requires over 600 ft/lb. of torque to loosen and must be tightened to those specs also. If they're not pitted or otherwise damaged, just replace the springs and bushings.
