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. It's being stubborn.
