37-41 Spindles.
39-41 brake backing plates, heel of shoe adjustments at bottom.

What in the hell is that shim looking crap shoved between the axle knuckle and the slpindle back?
I’ll answer my own question… it appears to be shims to take up slack/wobble in the kingpins. Take all that stuff apart, clean it up, and see if the kingpin bushings and pins are slap worn out or the hole in the axle boss is wallowed out, it will be one or all of that.
