Need help identifying this spindle please

Hey guys. This particular spindle is on my Geo Tracker which has a straight front axle. Trying to figure out what type of spindle it is so I can order disc brakes for it.

Here are a couple of pics and the outer bearing has "Bower 09067 USA" written on it if that helps. I also have just about any measurement you could want on it if you need them to help identify the spindle.

Also wanted to know if you guys think the king pin has c-clips at the top and / or the bottom to help hold it in. I took out the retaining bolt for the king pin and it would not budge after banging it with a hammer. Guessing it has retaining clips but wanted to ask you guys. Couldn't really tell through the white paint.

I think it's a Ford spindle of some sort but not certain. Any help is much appreciated....

Very similar to early Ford Econoline. The pinch bolt and rust is the only thing that holds the pin. The clips or "O"-ring only hold the dirt/grease cover or seal the end.

Most king pins require heat to remove. Rust and age set them in the axle real well.

Thanks Wayne. I have a bunch of different measurements on the spindle. I will just call Speedway tomorrow and see if they have what I need.

Thanks Bob. You are always very helpful. I thought they might be Ford spindles due to my research on the outer bearing. My neighbor also said I might have to heat up the spindle to remove the king pin if I have to go that far. Hopefully, Speedway will have a disk brake for this spindle and I can leave it all together. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
