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.
