Got one of the kingpins replaced the other day. Today I was looking at the axle and noticed something not quite right. I don't think it'll drive very well that way. dang Picture 1.

Got it fixed today. Should work a lot better. Picture 2.

Sometimes, when I am deep into a task, I get a bad case of tunnel vision and don't see that I am screwing up until late in the game. At those times, I need to walk away and come back to it with wider eyes and a fresh start. I can list a number of tasks that I thought were done until I stepped back and saw that I missed something while fully engaged in the task.

@tom moore: that's pretty much what happened here. My issue was that I had the axle supported upside down. I recall thinking to myself, the big holes for the backing plate/steering arms go on the bottom, but that was the top in the axles position while I was working on it. I would have seen it eventually. It's good I didn't get the other parts bolted back on yet.

Craig, I might still wind up screwing up the other side, as I'm still working on getting the original king pin out. grin It's being stubborn. frown

Sone disc brake calipers will swap side to side, but it's tough to get rid of the air in the lines with the bleeder screws on the bottom!

Too little kingpin inclination actually, (to pick nits).
