Expansion plug

Iím working on my 1936 Chevy truckís front axle. I took it apart to sand blast and paint it. The king pins and bushings were fine with no play. My problem is the expansion plugs are buggered up and need replaced. Apparently I was not the first to remove these and replaced them. Anyway getting back to my problem, I measured the hole and the plugs and found them to be 27/32 in.
I have googled them and found that Dorman made them, but I canít find them.
Does anyone know where I can get some expansion plugs without buying a king pin set?
