With the kit, king pin bushings do not need to be reamed after they are installed into the steering knuckle, which saves labor, time and equipment costs. Instead of pressing in the bushings during installation, customers can use the kit to easily install spiral bushings by hand. Additionally, the king pin's special groove pattern design allows grease to permeate high-wear areas.
FastSet uses only Meritor approved quality components and significantly reduces repair time as well as maintenance costs.
The Meritor FastSet King Pin Kit is covered by Meritor's standard aftermarket warranty. For more information about the kits and availability, visit Literature on Demand on meritor.com and search for publication numbers SP-1637 and SP-1728.
