I thought mine were bad when I changed them but you have mine beaten by a decent margin. At least they are cheap to replace.
Use calcium based waterproof grease when you reassemble the king pins. It is more tolerant to water contamination than normal lithium grease. Just don't use it in the CV. That needs black molybdenum disulphide grease.

Looking good 

I’m laid up in hospital (7 weeks and counting!) with a dislocated bone that’s been removed from my right foot, now awaiting a mechano external frame (for another six weeks) as they attempt to realign my foot…

So progress on mine is non-existent… itching to get back to it in a few months when I’m sorted though!
