Our king pins (R6018) are made in Spain by a manufacturer which used to supply Citroen, beware there are other pins on the market which really are not up to the job.
Contains, pin, top bush, lower bush, cup washer, 2 x spacer washer, thrust washer, lower threaded plug and top welch plug.
Kingpins are the same as they where on 1948 2cv, so they are a slightly primitive device, however, if frequently greased they are safe and reliable.
We are frequently asked whether a car will pass an MOT test on worn kingpins or other items - your MOT tester can tell you that! We just need to sell you lots of parts! However:-
TOP KINGPIN TIPS:
1] Use grease with molybdenum disulphide.
2] Always raise wheel before greasing.
3] Grease pins every 600 miles (1000kms).
4] Grease pins immediately before MOT test!
5] Don't replace both if only one is worn!
Kingpins can often be loose in the suspension arm eye even after fitting new, this can be a result of using excessive heat to help in removal (please don't use heat!) or simply wear through having had several sets of pins in years past.
The solution is to fit a new suspension arm.
