Samurai front end trouble

Tire leans in at top on front right side. Bearings are good, never had front end apart. Could it possibly be a king pin problem or any other suggestions? Have checked axle tube and it's not bent.

How is your truck built and what wheeling style best describes you?

If the tire is leaning in, you only got a few reasons.

1) The king pin bearings at totally shot and missing rollers

2) The lower king pin fell out

3) Bent tube

I'd go with #3.

King pin bearings were totally gone... eye sight is fine thank you very much. If you had looked at it and thought it were straight, you would be cock-eyed.

I've never been, but on occasion, my wifey has been "cock-eyed".







Yup, I went there.
