Virginia too, and I think NJ....I'm not sure because there seems to
be fewer intances of One Way to One Way intersections here (so I
haven't bothered to check), but there's lots in Richmond, VA....

These are common in NJ (I can think of 4 or 5 offhand) although they
are becoming less so. It seems they have a pretty bad safety

Now about the trunions....
Why would you want to use anything else? Who wants to ream King Pin
bushings? Go buy an MG or A-H -- then try to rebuild the front
suspension in your back yard.....The trunions seem to work very well,
they seem stronger than ball joints size for size....I'd much rather
have a nice bronze trunion that I can clean and dissassemble and
relube every year than those junky sealed "lubed for life" (yeah
right) ball joints from a TR7....
