    I spent $1100 on them for an old Freightliner Columbia a few months ago.

    thats about right. all depends if the king pins need a little extra work with heat to bang them out. believe it or not, sometimes they do come out on their own

    I took mine to inter. dealer in Atl. and told them to put bushings on R. side only for 380$, but they said same thing after they got it up on jack/stands he handed me a tire bar and the L. side moved less but went ahead and let them do both sides for 760$ and it quit making banging sounds on turns?

    I’m going to do mine myself. Sometimes if they’re real bad, axle gets eggholed. 2mil+ miles. I may need to call the “Axle Surgeon”. I hear they have very good kits, and will come to you, and do the whole Job, in which case, is cheaper than a shop doing them and needs to call them, due to Shop up-charges $$$$ ?????
