Which Way Round Should My Skateboard Trucks Go?

You may have just found yourself with new components and are ready to build your first skateboard? Maybe you took off your trucks for the first time when changing decks and are faced with a conundrum? Which way round should your trucks go? This is a good question and there is a simple answer, the basic rule to always remember is ‘Kingpin in’. When looking down at your board, both truck kingpins should be facing each other, and your truck hangers will be facing outwards on the nose and tail. This is the only way your trucks will work and turn together. If you have put them on the wrong way round you will know about it the second you step on your board and have no choice but to correct them. Just remember, if the kingpins are facing each other you’re good to go. Your skateboard should look like this.
