This job can be very difficult you probably with need a torch to heat the axle but not to much and a big hammer to drive the pins out after you remove the lock pins.

I have a 39 chevy that darts to the right once in a while

Are you sure it is a 1939? What model is it? You cannot visually inspect ball joints or bearings. They need to be physically checked. Also you could have a brake issue where one is dragging.

How to grease a kingpin

If you're restoring a T-bird, I strongly recommend buying the Haynes or Chilton manual. It's like $25 and not only does it have an exact diagram, plus a picture of where to put the grease for the kingpin, but it'll help you keep the engine running at peak efficiency, maintain the car and get the best gas mileage, torque, etc. It's a bargain at the price.

I need a diagram for changing out the kingpins on a 1979 ford 150 short bed two wheel drive pickup

Not sure that there is a diagram, but you may also need bushings, as they wear also, and this may take special tools.
