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 1949-54 Chevy suspension, as well as tubular or I-beam street rod axles using 1949-54 Chevy spindles.

Use with 916-32100 or 916-32104 spindles.

Could this pin set be used on a 57 1/2 ton if the spindles were machined?

Using the car king pin needle bearing set on a pickup could be done but for full gain the axle boss height would also need to be changed. The passenger car set has a lower bearing that carries the weight of the vehicle but on the pickup there is what is referred to as a thrust washer that is less than half the bearing height. To use this bearing you would also need to change either the axle boss or one of the arms of the spindle to increase the room to accept the bearing.
