I went out and tried to do a test fit of the pipe into the spindle; the pipe is 0.003" to fat! I will have to have it turned down a little in a lathe.


I don't know what to call it exactly, I am going to call it the kingpin though. Whatever you want to call it, I made a sketch of it. The image in the PDF is sideways, it needs to be rotated clockwise one time (right click).


The 3 point arm end (blue) is welded to the topside of a PK axle (orange) that is cut to the the correct width. The strut (red) has two bolts on the backside that cause the strut to clamp down onto the piece of pipe (green) that goes inside of it. The pipe will have the partially threaded shaft that goes through the ball (red) in the 3 point arm end. On the threaded shaft will be a nut (black), the nut will be tightened down onto the ball, the ball and socket part of the 3 point arm will rotate when the wheels are turned.

Looks good, Ryan. I would call it a strut, myself.
