You are going to have to buy a good manual (Bentley) to get the dimensions and instructions you need for this job. You can't do the king pin without a special reamer and a press. You can do the link pin bushings with sockets and a vise, or hammer.

I have the Beetle king pin reamer for once you press the bushings in. A friend had a hard time with this job due to the new king pin bushings being too big, the reamer could not even start. New parts are not always the answer anymore.
