The slope seems to be coming from the bottom bushing, the slop is front to rear when you grab the spindle, but seems snug at the top.
The king pin does turn with the spindle, it seems as if it is stuck pretty solid. On the top of the king pin it has two flat sides, I am guessing that is so you can hold the king pin in place with a wrench to tighten the bottom nut. With a 12" cresent wrench I could not get the king pin to turn at all.
With the wheel and tire off you can grab the spindle and turn it left and right, the king pin moves with it, but it won't move if you hold the spindle still and try to turn the king pin.
Maybe I am missing something here, I don't know.
I will try to get some pics for you on my cell phone, I am pretty computer stupid so I would be much easier if I sent them to your cell phone, if that is possible pm me your cell number and I will send them to you.
