Jig Welded Spindle and Brackets - Left
I bought these for my barstool racer project and when I got home one of them was complete and the other was missing one of the small plastic bushings for the king pin. You can not get just the bushing. I went back to the store where I got them from to get another complete spindle just for the bushing and the store clerk and I opened three packages of them before we found one with both bushings.

If you plan on makin a go kart or replacing spindles on your old one well this is for you. Its not really worth the time to fabricate them yourself because 9 times out of ten they will not come out as precise as these ones an you cant beat the price!

I purchased both the left and right to replace spindles with a smaller shaft size so I could put larger wheels on my nephew's go cart. The spindle arms were a direct fit to the existing brackets, the only thing I added was tapping the collars and adding a grease fitting for lubrication. I was very pleased with the strength and quality of these spindles.

Kingpin size 5/8" Dia, Kingpin bore .690", Bracket Inside Dim = 2.50".
I had a real problem with this part. It did not fit my spindle brackets which have a 3" space. I could not compensate for this with std bushings because the kingpin bore was not a std size - it measures .690 dia.
Probably the worst feature about this unit, I think, is that they use a thin plastic bushing to make up for the slop between the .690 dia bore and the 5/8 dia kingpin bolt. I cannot see this plastic bushing lasting very long.

These spindles have been great for me. No problems at all in several years.

Welded spindle and braket.
I ordered both the left and right for a home brew mini-jeep. They mounted easily and supported 300lbs without any problem. Well built and easy to use.
