    Hello Hamb'rs;
    Say question if someone could help please.
    Friend asked me to rebuild some Spindles for a guys Chevy Gasser. They are 63 Econoiline. Pressed out the bushings from the knuckle and could smell loctite.o_O Looking closer saw they were not factory and were someones turned up bushings that had been Knurled also.
    So my worry is that someone may have also messed with the bores. Possibly also altering Kingpin inclination.
    Does anyone know the OD of the bushing?? Thought I was just going to be getting the Moog kit and get these babies back together quick. Hoping this doesn't turn into a freebie job that I have to spend a bunch of time on getting back together correctly.
    Thank for your consideration
    Luke
