My old Jimny has developed a little oil/grease leak at the two front swivel hubs although there isn't much play in the kingpins after excluding a little play in the wheel bearings.
Not that I would recommend it but is it possible to replace the kingpin bearings inner race with their taper rollers without dismantling the whole hub assembly?
I realize that this wouldn't be a job well done as the outer race should be replaced at the same time but it would mean get me back on the road (fields actually) that much quicker.

thanks for any advice given

you need to dismantle it to change the inner bearings so you might as well as do the whole lot properly
