Well I am moving on the 65 to get it road worthy. I was wondering if anyone in Hampton Roads has had good luck with any shops replacing kingpins. I am removing the old and buying new, but apparently you need a kinping reamer to make the new pins fit the joint correctly. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Just checking, did you take the retaining bolt out??? It has been left in before. I know some of the kps get really frozen. I have been checking around for a reamer, the best are an adjustable one so the fit can be "fine tuned". Very pricey..got spoiled going a mile down the road to borrow my neighbors' set.

Just have to say thank you for recommending bert's alignment. Had me in and out in less than an hour. Incredibly nice guy, I will be going back there for the final alignment. If I weren't stuck at work all night I would get some pictures posted for everyone to see.
