kingpin housing / spindle housing
Explanation:
From the 2 fitting googles for "Lenkfaust", one provides a picture (see ref).
It shows the kingpin housing/bushing for the steering on a rigid axle.

On tractors with a similar steering arrangement, the kingpin is called the spindle.

Don't fall for the lure of 'steering knuckle' (Achsschenkel) as it also uses a term related to the human hand.
