"I bought these for my barstool racer project and when I got home one of them was complete and the other was missing one of the small plastic bushings for the king pin. You can not get just the bushing. I went back to the store where I got them from to get another complete spindle just for the bushing and the store clerk and I opened three packages of them before we found one with both bushings."

"If you plan on makin a go kart or replacing spindles on your old one well this is for you. Its not really worth the time to fabricate them yourself because 9 times out of ten they will not come out as precise as these ones an you cant beat the price!"

Well crafted

"I purchased both the left and right to replace spindles with a smaller shaft size so I could put larger wheels on my nephew's go cart. The spindle arms were a direct fit to the existing brackets, the only thing I added was tapping the collars and adding a grease fitting for lubrication. I was very pleased with the strength and quality of these spindles."

Spindles

By fhof
from Syracuse, NY
"Kingpin size 5/8" Dia, Kingpin bore .690", Bracket Inside Dim = 2.50".
I had a real problem with this part. It did not fit my spindle brackets which have a 3" space. I could not compensate for this with std bushings because the kingpin bore was not a std size - it measures .690 dia.
Probably the worst feature about this unit, I think, is that they use a thin plastic bushing to make up for the slop between the .690 dia bore and the 5/8 dia kingpin bolt. I cannot see this plastic bushing lasting very long.
