Wow!!! haven't seen or even thought about one of those in years.
Brass is an easily worked material...you may be able to have a local machine shop make them up for you. if you do, you may even be able to have them made from "oilite" a brass material infused with a lubricant often used as shaft bearings on electric motors.
Don't have a good source to offer but what I mentioned may be a good alternative!!
Good luck with it!!

How do I remove a rear end from a 1993 chevy z71 4x4 1/2 ton pickup?


Fairly simple process( but not always easy,Just warning you in advance) 1. Disconnect rubber brake line from top of axle.Plug appropriately to prevent fluid loss. 2. Disconnect e-brake cables. (beside the frame on driver's side) 3. Remove shocks ( or just diconnect at either end) 4. disconnect driveshaft at axle and leave in trans (if possible) to prevent fluid loss. 5 Axle can now be removed by either removing the bolts at each end of the springs or by removing the u-bolts attaching the axle to the springs

How do i replace king pins on 1939 buick?


In general terms, you would remove the front wheels, remove the retainer clip or lock for each pin, and drive the pins out with a brass punch or other tool. Then the bushings can be replaced.
I would suggest getting a repair manual for the car or for that era since each make is different. Sometimes a special puller is needed.

2000 jeep gc laredo 4x4 4.7 auto The front end shakes


if it shakes over 50 miles per hour, it could be your front tires need balancing. and check your ball joints while you are at it. or king pins if it has that. (they are different from ball joints but serve the same purpose.)

Hear a popping noise when braking. Could this be


This vehicle does not have king pins. There are a lot of front end parts that go bad. Ball joints, stab links, sway bar bushings. Best bet would be to have a proffesional take a listen to it.
