I'm thinking of doing this in a couple of weeks. If you hold my drivers side wheel you can really move it around :?

Good to hear you had no problems Paul :)

I take it I'll be changing the bushes as well then?

happy St Davids Day to you Jonathan :)

As for kingpin tools.

I have the drift set and the citroen press tool type. The press tool one is easiest if you have access to impact tools to wind it up and down and shock the pin out, if not, drift set all the way ;-)

Do I need to disconnect the drive shaft? If so, how do I do that?

Yes!

Remove the wheel
Remove the split pin
Remove the castellated nut (socket and a long pipe, maybe someone to press on tje brakepedal. Apply handbrake and first gear also).

When the nut is removed you can take the driveshaft out of.

Fitting the otherway, and apply the right torque!

i used a different technique to remove kingpins from mu acadiane. i had a 24volt hammer cordless drill with a chisel function on it.. i just put the drill on the top and it pushed out the pin using shock treatment worked really well for me. also have the press which works well to. never had a kingpin that i couldnt remove. but the best thing to do is keep them geased up so you dont have to change them in the first place

I managed it easily without needing to remove the upright. Not necessary IMO.

Neglect plus corrosion?
Have to admit that's the worst I've seen for a long time... :lol:

Can I excuse myself of any guilt by saying the arms had only been on my car three weeks and I greased the pins when i put them on...

It had around 20mm of play at the top of the tyre, handled like a greased weasel!
