Doing a steering knuckle service.
The king pin bearings and races are worn and will be replaced.
On disassembly I see the axle spindle has grooving.
What would cause this wear pattern?
Isn't there a void in that space between the wheel bearings?
It is quite probable something jammed there and spun between the bearing race seats or a bearing race disintegrated to the point it almost fit in that space and moved there forcibly. Or it could just be John's answer below! _________________ Wes K
