Want to go faster?
Replace your kingpin bearings, felts and seals! My Zuk didn't want to run over 55 mph on the highway (even downhill.) I knew my kingpin bearings were bad on one side, but I just kept postponing repairs. I finally got around to doing it this week and WOW! what a difference. The Zuk accelerates faster, has a higher top end, is easier to steer, and even stops better now! Apparently the front end alignment was so bad with the worn-out kingpin bearings that it just couldn't roll right at highway speeds. For those of you who have never had a knuckle apart, the kingpin bearings function similar to ball joints. Now I'm wondering how much faster it will go after a front end alignment!
