Today it feels like I have finally become a true Jimny owner.
I have started my first kingpin rebuild and everything's going fine.
Finally joined the club :laugh:



And yes every bolt came out EXCEPT the ABS sensor bolt which just snapped... What it wrong with that bolt, made of monkey metal?
Anyway helicoil and stainless steel replacements should make it a thing of the past. May even add value to the vehicle :P

Thanks to Martin for all the new bits and the how to video

Well done,,, I did my offside king a couple o' years ago, main thing I believe is not to over do the grease packing, 100 m/ltrs I think is the recommended amount by Suzuki.

Yeah I snapped my driverside ABS bolt, good thing is it's siezed enough that it's been sat in there for a year, I've been meaning to drill & retap it but have been lazy.
