    Wel, I got the D60 and 14B under the 71 blazer and after a camping trip the lower kingpin has a good 1/2 inch of play. Anyone replaced a lower before? Where would you recomend for parts and do you have any tips? Just asking before I dive into it.

    They are easy. It is a bearing/race set-up and it is very similar to installing bearings and races in your spindle hubs.
