Loose Kingpin Volvo


Recommended Posts

Is repairable. Mine was. A good front end shop knows this. There is a shop on 59 out from Livingston. Forget name and maybe someone here knows. I found them from reference on this site. They do 4 wheel alignment or 6 if not singled, front end repair. They press out the shaft and put in new bushings.

A shop diagnosed my truck with a loose kingpin.  This truck has the hendrickson air ride.  I am told these are not supposed to be serviceable, but there are some that will work on them.  Anyone have experience with this?

Yes they are repairable.  They don’t have the traditional kingpin but bushings.  Be sure the shop is knowledgeable about Hendrickson and have them use the brass bushings.  Had mine done several years ago by a shop in Knoxville, TN that specialized in Hendrickson.
