Default RJ Speed Sport Kingpin

I've basically finished the whole build and my account doesn't let me post pictures yet, but the issue I'm having is the kingpin only pulls through a certain distance and then stops, it goes through the threads, smooth part, and the first top threaded part but reaches the middle line and just stops, I've tried everything from lubricating it, to pulling it through, the instructions have the kingpin all the way through and the wheels don't fit properly without the kingpins all the way through

Any tips on how I can get the kingpins through? Sorry for the bad post I'd put pics but I can't

I recently helped build a couple of these, and didn't have any major problems with the front end. Just to be sure is it...
king pin or the axle?

I think I had a similar problem with a Legends, I used a 1/8 drill bit to clean the hole, and then used a vice to press the stub axle into the steering block.
