MGB '71 MGB Front End Rebuild

I got my B running so now I get to embark on the journey to make it safe and handle well. Going into a front end rebuild the big hurdle I'm seeing is the king pins. There's a little verticle wiggle in the left (driver's) side and almost a 1/16" on the right so I'm guessing they're toast. Given that does anyone where I can get bushes reamed in the Portland area, or if I have to ship them somewhere further?

Any other thoughts on the front suspension?

Just a thought, but have you checked out any local MG/Brit car clubs in the area? Some clubs have the ream to hand around to members when needed, saves a lot of time & money.

That's good to know, I'll try and look for some of that. Little scared to try and ream my own bushings because it sounds pretty easy to mess up but if if the reamer's attainable I'm more inclined to try.
