    Where can I get cheap kingpin press for replacing the kingpin set on a truck suspension thats a half ton? The axles/ibeams are off the frame and laying on the garage floor.

    Get a price for a local machine shop to hydraulic press them out and back in.
    Harbor freight has a 12 ton A frame press for $120 + tax.
    Maybe a rental store can rent you one for cheaper than a machine shop charges.

    Not sure how much force will be needed to press them out, depending upon rust or free play. The rental or machine shop may be a better route.
