    Default Don't you hate it when.....

    EDIT: Don't read this if you don't want to hear me ***** and moan. I'll save you some time. hahah because that's basically what I'm doing.

    You buy something new for your set up one day, then within a few days (in my case a few hours) something else breaks and then you have to buy that. I just bought a new deck because I had a ply split, could've skated through it for a little while but figured it was an old deck and I had the money so why not. Then in my night sesh tonight I snap my king pin. So now I'm going back to get new trucks. And I was also planning on updating my bearings but I'll hold onto my lucky's now. When did my set up all of a sudden become an issue out of no where....

    you can replace a kingpin for just a few bucks.

    How? That would be the cheaper option for sure.

    You should be able to find them around where you live or online. They are quite cheap.

    Shops in my area used to sell kingpins. I don't know if they still do, because I haven't broken a kingpin in years, but that's how I used to replace them. You could check there. Otherwise, a hardware store would likely have them. They're just bolts.

    My shop didn't. But then again my local shop is Zumiez.....
    So I was in need of a new pair of trucks so I bought a pair. I'm holding onto these though and when I find somewhere that sells kingpins i'll throw it on.

    If they are indy's you can buy them directly from the distributer

    Is that what the kids are calling it these days?
