The only way to properly ream the kingpin bushings is with a dual cut reamer that cuts both the upper and lower bushing at the same time.  

There is no way to really prove how good a job is done after the bushings are reamed. If you install the new kingpin the top of the spindle it will feel really bad because of the length of the kingpin and it will have a lot of movement.

After the king pins are reamed, how can one inspect that a good job has been done. I think I can reverse the king pin, insert it into the upper bushing and try to rock it, but what about the lower bushing?
If I was at my old job, I would have to use a granite surface plate and a dial indicator and probably still have to make a fake pin.
