New lower bushings and bearings

Always nice to have the right tool. This is part of a bearing setting kit I borrowed from my Stude buddy.

The bearings went in nicely, but the bushings were quite tight. Still all went well. Ideally you would use and bench press with the bearing installer (the long shaft is only used when using a hammer to seat the bearing.) Both the bearings and the bushings were set just flush with the spindle surfaces.

Test fitting the king pins in the spindles. The fit was quite snug. Any more and they would have to be pressed in which I don’t think would be a good idea.
