Everything you need except the reamer.

May 24, 2014
You will need a reamer in order to complete the job. I did not know this before and ended up buying my parts again. Destroyed the bushings in the first set and there is no where that sells the bushings separately. The bushings are over-sized to compensate for wear in the axle areas. You will need a hand reamer size 0.861 in order to cut bushings to proper size for the new king pin.
Pros:
  • all the parts you need
Cons:
  • no warning or instructions
Yes, I recommend this product.

Speedway’s king pin sets are in standard dimensions and not oversize. If you have an original axle and the king pins have gotten loose and elongated the holes in the axle boss the only solution is to have the boss machined to oversize and then sleeve back to the original specifications. If oversize were offered you would still need to machine the axle to fit as commonly the hole in the boss is no longer round.
