How do I adjust the trucks on my skateboard?

How to build a complete skateboard - final adjustments

Before you skate check your newly assembled deck for
anything you might have missed. Check the tightness of
the truck mounting hardware, the tightness the truck
axel nuts and the king pins. The king pins are the large nuts used to adjust the tightness of your truck turning ability. Remember everyone skates their trucks a little differently; the tightness of your king pins is personal preference.

Take a minute to admire your work. Now go skate!
