I just picked up a dana 60 kingpin for a 1000 bucks[36] it s in over all good condition but im gonna rebuild the king pins just becasue i wanna do it while the axle is out from under the vehicle. My question is how to remove the actual pin itself :confused0006: know ive read the info on pirate 4x4 but id prefer not use heat eny body got some ideas
Much apprecited

heat
whats wrong with heat
in less there showing wear i would leave them
just put new springs and bushings in if you can get away with it

never done them myself, I changed everything but the upper pins
dont see why an impact gun couldnt get it done, if the IR 1/2" couldnt do it I would step up to a 3/4 or 1"
a little heat is always good for removing fasteners, glowing red hot like some pirate threads show is ugly

your gonna need to go buy about 3 feet of 7/8'' HEX STOCK from your local steel supplier. Heat it up with an oxy-acetylene torch and bend it into a giant allan key. Insert the ''allan key'' into the upper kingpin, add at least another 4 foot cheater bar onto the key for more leverage and giver shit. Get someone else to heat the bottom of the kingpin while you reef on it. Theres actually a writeup billavista did

OTT's issue is timely delivery of goods not quality of products.

ive delt with ott many times only once did i get what i needed in the time frame they promised ... but there arms are nice ... so are the www.northwestfab.com (http://www.northwestfab.com) we are a dealer for there products and have used them for many applications and i have them on my own junk ... buy the complete high steer kit u will save in the long run ...

I apreciate it brothersgrimm but im in kelowna thanks enyways dude. But what have people done as far as 70 shafts or is this non workable?

m j
07-18-2007, 03:43 PM
if it is a chevy or newer (90-93) dodge then the d70 shafts go right in with the matching hubs
that is what a spicer 35spline upgrade is

Mj are you shure ? Because i got a 78 kingpin ford and im shure dodge used the same diff just with passenger side pumpkin. And the dodges most i think are kingpin. So do you guys think there is a way to make 70 shafts fit.

ford used different everything then chev and dodge
you are stuck with custom alloy shafts for a ford d60 35spline outer upgrade

knuckles, spindles, shafts, brakes, are all different on the fords

So i think im gonna stick with stock axles their cheaper to replace and ill save my money and put it into some good reliable steering and a locker Cheers Guys Thanks for the input.

well get upgraded chromolly axle shafts if u plan too but a locker in cause you'll just blow the stockers up in not careful and its for sure with a standard,
