Apparently these are different that the others. I do have a OTR Trucking alignment shop here who says they can lathe new bushings but thought I'd see if anyone has some stock they want to sell first.
I'm checking with AMS obsolete too.
Thank you.

That's a 56 Windsor Wagon king pin bushings which are badly worn. - Located in Sioux Falls, SD
Has Power Steering!

You might be surprised by this question but:

Power Steering wagon or No power steering wagon?

Makes a difference. The NO power steering version has one of the "bushings" actually a needle bearing whereas the Power Steering version has two bronze bushings per side

The non-Power Steering version:



Power Steering version:

Still looking for these king-pin bushings for the steering. I sent emails to several vendors but they never reply back. So maybe someone here knows of one. And yes - this is a power steering vehicle.

Sorry, I thought that you would have found a set by now.

As an Estate wagon, your car got all the heaviest duty, e.g. Imperial level, stuff (spindles, hubs, king pins, 5.5" x 5 wheels, etc).

On that basis the king pin set you seek had PN 1653 444. (see below) (The non-Estate wagon 1956 Desotos and Chryslers (and the 56 Dodge D500) all used the 1653 445 set)

Googling just now with "165344 king pin set" turns up a set at MoparMall (they don't say that they are sold out so fingers crossed):

https://www.moparmall.com/1955-56-DeSoto-Chrysler-King-Pins-p/wl-812...

Good luck
