Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. What do you need for information? You are replacing the spindle and king pin assembly?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Just the spindle
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Can I replace the spindle without a kingpin press
Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 9 months ago.

The king pin has to be removed to remove the spindle. It is the pin an the bushings that the spindle pivots on

Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 9 months ago.

You need to remove the front wheel, the hub, retaining nuts, bearings, brake assembly, etc. Then the king pin retainers. Depending if yours is a tapered pin or straight , sometimes you can press them out with a 20 ton jack or drive them out with a sledge hammer. I have cut them out carefully with a torch before. You are installing new bushings and pin. Sometimes they are loose enough to drive out easy
