Default 521 fix up for a new driver

Hi guys, I have a 70 521 all stock solidish🙄. I'm going to lower the truck and I'm familiar with the torsion set up but my spindles are wobbly...worn bushings. I've had trouble finding replacements. Seems like they were available rebuilt but not anymore. Any help would be appreciated

Welcome to infamous Nissan! Sounds like the kingpins may be worn. You may be able to find a set on eBay or at the ratsun forum. There are also a bunch of great videos on YouTube from Michael Klotz https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL...6-dVrcjcUd3npX

Welcome to IN.

Ooooooooooo, a 70? Gotta take PICs of this, in progress. Can you start now? We do LUV eye candy! (nope, don't matter the condition)

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.
