Heres the ones i scored off ebay for my 3/4T. You will also need to ream them to fit. I have seen both of these on ebay several times. I just bought mine justvover a year ago. That part number might help you.

I'm a machinist and making a king pin one off that was right would be near impossible. They need to be heat treated per GM specs, if you knew what the alloy was. The best and easiest thing is keep digging to find the correct pin.

Custom gunsmiths have been heat treating parts since the days of Brown Bess muzzleloaders in the 18th. Century, or before. Using a Brinell hardness tester is not rocket science, and neither is using a rosebud torch and some Kasenit powder. The only places that might need to be tempered are the ends where the bushings ride, and those don't need to be brittle- - - -just surface hardened.
