Would anyone know what is involved in changing out the King Pins on my 87 Samurai’s front Knuckle? Basically wondering how much disassembly is required and how to preload the King Pins. (I’ve done the ball joints on a ford D44 just wondering how much harder/easier this might be...)

Also can anyone post an exploded view of the King Pin assembly or recommend a decent manual, my Haynes manual doesn't go in to any detail with respect to the front knuckle.

Lastly, be easy on me this is my first Sami... still learning...

Simple !!! Take off the dust covers and the brakes, dissconnect the tie rod, pull the kingpins and slide out the axle, pop in the new bearings and presto. Torque is light, i think 20-30lbs. Its a breeze, if u can do a ford then u can do a sami, these things are so easy to work on, i love'm !!!
