At a garage I used to hang around (and get called in for grunt work)
30 years ago, got in a Volvo semi truck.

Kingpin replacement.

It had timken tapered roller bearings top & bottom.

We never saw one before, but the garage owner thought it wasn't
a bad idea, seeing how the truck had 550k on the clock, said brass
bushings didn't go nearly as far.

Replacement work was easy, just change out parts.
