Guest Posted May 3, 2000 Share Posted May 3, 2000 In the 49-51 Ford Shop Manual, Section 2 for Front Suspension gives the procedure for installing new king pin (or spindle bolt) bushings. Their procedure calls for Ford special tools 3052 for removing staking burrs for installing new expansion plugs, 3110-N for the spindle bolt remover and replacer, 3110-A for the spindle bushing expander, and 3110-G for the spindle bushing reamer. Well, I can't run down to my local autoparts and pick these items up. I doubt seriously if even the Ford dealerships stock these items anymore (could be wrong - Ford still has many twin I-beam on their trucks and Explorers). For those of you in this forum who've done this procedure a few times, what are good substitute tools for performing this procedure correctly? <BR> Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
