Do the 3" lift combo spindles for beam suspensions have a a set of bearings for the king pins or are just bronze bushings? Trying to build myself a set and figuring what size I should make the sleeve that slides over the king pin. Short of cash and being a fabricator trying to save myself from buying parts that I should be able to make. Any help with dimensions would be very helpfull. Thanx

Most have bearings. Some have used bronze bushings but they do not last very long. If you go bronze bushing plan on replacing them often. Been down that road. Ended up replacing them for good with bearings.
