So this weekend I broke my king pin. I was wondering what everyone's opinion is on what I should do. I have drop spindles but I was wondering if I should just repair them with a new kingpin or replace it all (spindle,kingpin,knuckle) so this won't happen again. Now if I replace it I'll go with non dropped kit due to the fact that my set is bowed out.

I would just replace the pin unless you want to spend some $$. how much of a drop/lift do your spindles have? is this the first time you have broke a pin?

Not to sure and yes first time I have broke one. A friend of mine found me some king pins and bushings for free so I'm going to try and replace them

if you press new bushings in, you will have to ream them. if the new pin isn't too sloppy, leave the bushings alone.
