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!

Re: Want to go faster?

Thanks Joe. I didn't need any help with the job, but I guess it was kinda selfish of me not to call you anyway! [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] When we go wheeling, we'll check your kingpin bearings. Might be doing yours next instead of mine!
P.S. Did you get your starter problem fixed? Are we still on for tomorrow?
