    Thomas,
    They're straight kingpins, so it shouldn't matter which way. When I changed mine, I took the whole axle out, flipped it over and pushed the pins out the "top" of the spindle. I was better able to support the axle in my press that way.
    Good luck, Mike

    Hi Mike. Have pulled the old pins and bushings out. Think i have to leave the job with pulling the new pins in. Think the bushings has to be honed. What about the shims? Do you have som data?
    Regards Thomas

    Hi Mike. Do you also have 2wd? Did you anything with the bushings before you pulled the pins in? What about chims? Have read about too tight pins in some forums.

    Thomas,
    My truck is 2wd. It was originally equipped with a FA10 front axle, but I swapped in a FA12 from a D-series pickup. I took the axle apart to have the axle beam powder coated, but took the axle to a truck shop to install the new king pins and bushings. I do not have a reamer for fitting the new bushings and pins. I bought a king pin and bushing set, which came with a shim assortment, and gave it to the truck shop to install. I do not have any shop manuals that provide information on replacing king pins, so I can't really provide more info.
    Good Luck, Mike
