Front Axle Repair | Axle Doctors Sleeving System
Routine wear of the steering axle eye can cause loose kingpins. We will bore and sleeve the steering axle on the truck within hours to get you back on the road as quickly as possible because waiting days for your front axle repairs just won’t do. We want to get your truck fit to report back to work in hours.
Axle Surgeons sleeves are precision-machined from seamless aircraft steel tubing for strength. They are thinner than typical machine shop sleeves, Our special Axle Doctors sleeves require less boring of the steer axle eye, keeping more of the original axle intact.
Our patented Axle Doctors sleeving system is designed for accuracy of boring angle, centering and size. The process restores your original inclination angle, a factor in reducing tire wear. Remachining the worn thrust bearing surface restores the original spec. An improperly bored axle will increase your alignment costs.
Front Axle Repair | Loose Kingpins and Knuckle Eyes
Often the problem with your loose kingpin can be the knuckle eyes. Loose kingpins can cause steering difficulties and excess tire wear that can increase your operating cost. Too often, the traditional rebuilt kingpin lasts only half as long. When a technician rebuilds your kingpin, he should also examine the knuckle eyes for wear.
Simply replacing the kingpin set overlooks worn knuckle eyes that give the kingpin just enough play to erode the holes faster than normal. A trained Axle Doctor specialist can in-line bore and sleeve knuckle holes for a precise fit and give your kingpin set a full life.
In addition to treating kingpins and knuckles, we replace damaged drive and trailer spindles as well as spider plates on vehicles ¾ ton and up. Axle Doctors replacement techniques are safer, more durable, than old-fashioned patches or repairs. Only certified Axle Doctors are trained to use our new, more effective and fully patented process and products.
