Q & A

What's in the Box

Speedway deluxe king pins are a great improvement over stock-style king pins. They replace the original brass king pin bushings with precision needle bearings that provide superior strength, better lubrication and easier steering. They're simple to install and are an easy, cost-effective way to upgrade your 1942-1948 Ford suspension, as well as tubular or I-beam street rod axles using 1942-48 Ford spindles.

Great product, well made components, all

September 07, 2014
Great product, well made components, all necessary parts included. I think an improvement would be to utilize one longer needle bearing in the top spindle bore and one longer needle bearing in the lower spindle bore rather than the two small needle bearings in each spindle boss. Also, to prevent the possibility of the bearing assembly getting loose in the bore why not use the original grease fitting holes to install a set screw that would lock the bearing outer race in place.
Yes, I recommend this product.

GREAT fit and EASY install!

May 05, 2012
Be truthful with yourself before buying the stock bushing kit.....can you do it 100% by yourself? If not, GET THIS KIT! After wrestling with stock bushings, I pitched that kit and got this one. Incredible. Save yourself a mess of time and fiddling and buy this the first go-round.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great alternative to bushed kingpins

King pin kits such as 91032116 is designed to fit in a 42-48 Ford passenger spindles boss and axle boss of .813. The spindles themselves have a boss of approximately 15/16” to compensate for the needle bearing cage or the extra dimension created by the bushings. If using the original bushings they will require reaming to mate to the kingpin size.

Royal 1942-48 Ford King Pin Set
(Part #91024129)
                        

The stock "bushing" type king pins and bushings were fine on your old '42-'48 Ford car when it had drum brakes and only ran 50 mph. But now you've put an 11" disc brake kit and 400hp to the old girl. The upper king pin bushings take a tremendous amount of abuse and wear from added strain. "Royal" king pin kits feature dual needle bearings at both top and bottom and stainless steel king pins.

  • All stainless steel or chrome plated components
  • Needle bearings eliminate excessive steering wear on older brass bushings 
  • Easy to install and includes the special tool required
  • No machining required
  • Made in the U.S.A.
