Yea, that's why I didn't do it. Something like 15-20hrs labor...thieves.
I'm very comfortable with the idea of doing the job myself assuming there are no surprises. I'm 102 days(8,400mi) into a 9mo trip right now and nowhere near home so the only tools I have are what I brought though I believe I have everything thing I'd need minus an actual king pin press but I think I can fudge that between my small sledge and the levelers. My fear is that I'll tear this thing down and the knuckle will be worn out-of-round or the pins will seized in either the axle or knuckle at which point I've exceeded my resources and then I'm.....now that I type this out, I guess at that point I could put it all back together and drive it to the shop. Hmmmmm.
Well, I'm going to think about this a bit more today. Thanks for the nudge.
I'll still need an alignment so I'll give that shop a call today as well.
