Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)
You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.
changing kingpin bearings - stupid problem, help appreciated
Is there any mm sizes or special type of socket i need to use? Or do i just need to buy more sockets and try what works? Annoying that everything else was easy and now i have a problem like this.
Do not buy the Biltema 1" socket for this task .

Corrected arms all-round, rear disks, Recaro seats and harnesses
Probably need to go back to Biltema with ruler and pick up the next size available in mm. Anyone from Nordics done a kingpin bearing change with a Biltema tools?
Probably the current socket they sell in Biltema is just too modern and thin.
But this depends what the outer diameter of your socket is, and that is up to the manufacturer isn't it?
Acc to my SKF bearing catalogue the 30302 bearing should have a 36mm inner diameter for the hole supporting the race, 42mm outer.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there
