Kingpin Bottom Seal

Postby rrengineer » Sun Feb 04, 2018 3:12 am

Doing a re-bush of the front suspension. After pulling the spindles off the kingpin found bottom seal in pieces on one and completely missing on the other. Need this seal to keep the greas on the kingpin. The old one looks like cork. Can an O-Ring be used and what size would that be? All the usual suspects only list this seal as part of the kingpin rebuild kit for over $125 per side. Not likely to buy two of those for two seals.

Would a common garden hose washer or "gasket" be the correct size ?

ACE Hardware and pick up Cap Thread Gasket part # 4082178. Clean the ends of control arms very well because the seal will have a tendency to move on you while you slip king pin in place. To keep the seal from moving I ...
