Now, away from my schooling and in to the real world... I'd witnessed numerous times, mostly the old Ford I-Beam trucks wherein the pins would wear seemingly prematurely. These were on client's vehicles that were in fact well maintained. The common denominator? Vehicles were lubricated with the weight on them.
