What we can't sell is the sweet OG tools and the knowledge, but here's a quick break down of a stock spindle being re-assembled.

Start with a good cleaning and coat of paint



I recently scored this drift / reamer tool. For re-assembly, it's AWESOME!

Replace the thrust washer, fiber washer, and cap and slide the spindle on to the carrier (two hand job no pics)

Press in your king pins - always use plenty of grease.

X2





I use an old king pin to drive the new one down into the bushing through the carrier.

New link pin bushings X4

Not all tools are fancy.
For this I use a 1" deep socket to hold the spindle / carrier off the press and a mag wheel lug nut with washer to press in the bushing.

The socket also works as a stop once the bushing is in.

Add link pins and shims.

Done!

Box them up and ship them out, or install on a customers beam / car.

Here's the chart for that too.



I use the Type 1 version of this, but a straight edge an ruler or calipers will work.

Nice tools and know how.  Makes the "just send them to Greg" decision pretty easy.    thumbs up
