  1. Hey guys, I started pulling apart my parts front end and am just wondering if there is a place to buy specific bushings or if im going to have to mix and match them. Im just finishing up removing all the parts to sandblast, powder coat and reinstall. Seeing as how i have it apart im going to add a scarebird disc brake kit to them and new tie rod ends. Also wondering if i can get new coil springs or if something else will work. Thanks.

    Im toying with the idea of just laser cutting one out. I have all the specs for it so just need to autocad it and make it

    On the discussion of wheel alignment though, i found an online service manual describing how to set camber, toe in and complete a wheel alignment

    @Plymouthy Adams crime rate is actually quite horrendous in the prairies, but this was the pain i first dealt with.

    I had some pretty big issues with it but have made alot of progress. Previous owner had welded the rear rims to the hub assembly, so i had a bitch of a time removing the rear hubs. Its ultimately why i chose to do an axle swap. The plan is to rebuild the original driveline and put it all back in. Im more of a chevy guy, but was told to buy this dodge as most are rusted out and not in this condition. Its grown on me. I had alot of luck finding parts in portland in april and will be going again next year to search for harder to find parts such as the grille

    @knuckleharley i posted an ad over the winter looking for a pre 50s project vehicle, specifically a sedan as ive always liked the style. A friend of a friend runs a wrecking yard in Love, Saskatchewan and i was delivering a vehicle up there anyways so i swung by and got this. He has well over a thousand vehicles in varying conditions, but the only rust holes on this are through the trunk floor and a dime sized surface rust hole in a door post. I completed an axle swap and headlight conversion on it but the rest is stock. $800 for the car when i got it.

    Hey all, im just looking for some knowledge and perhaps instructions on how to correct camber on the front wheels on my car, 1941 dodge kingsway. My passenger side has quite a bit more camber than it should and id like to try correcting it myself before sending it into a shop. Any and all help is appreciated.

    Thanks for that diagram! How many pages is that manual? Got a picture of what it's called so I can look online for one?

    Yeah you need to move the spring perches on the axle. D20 axle perches are set at 47" center to center. So on the 8.8 they need to be relocated.

    From my research the axles with drums are just a little bit shorter sitting somewhere around 59". The stock D20 rear end is 60" and the 8.8 with discs is 59.81"

    I just picked up a 31 spline 8.8 from a 96 explorer, disc brakes and same bolt pattern from the local wreckers.

    I just went through the absolute pain of removing the rear brake drums and assemblies this weekend. The previous owner opted for welding one of the rims to the hub and drum. Thank God I'm a machinist and have access to a lathe to knock the excess weld off the original hub. Are there any rear axle parts from these (brakes, drums, hub) that are the same as other years and models? How long was a tapered/keyed axle used?

    Hey all, New to the group here but I just picked up this 1941 dodge Kingsway and am looking for some more information on it. It runs and drives and has the original engine in it. I'm new to mopar vehicles but couldn't pass up the opportunity to have it. I've gone through the threads regarding brake drum removal but am looking for additional information on wiring diagrams and component names for under the hood. Appreciate any and all help.
