Steering King Pins
A kingpin is a mechanical component in the steering system of a heavy goods vehicle (HGV) that connects the steering knuckle to the steering axle. The kingpin acts as the pivot point around which the steering knuckle and wheel rotate, allowing the driver to steer the vehicle. The kingpin is typically a cylindrical or tapered metal pin that is inserted into the steering knuckle and the steering axle. The kingpin has a hole through its center which allows it to be attached to the steering knuckle and steering axle with bolts. Kingpins are critical for the steering of a HGV as they allow the front wheels to rotate and steer the vehicle. They are subject to wear due to the forces and weight of the vehicle and the friction caused by the rotation. Over time, the kingpins can become loose or worn, which can cause the steering to feel loose or the vehicle to wander. Therefore, kingpins should be inspected and serviced regularly as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. In some cases, they may need to be replaced to ensure that the vehicle is safe to operate.
