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.

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.
