This instructable will teach you how to change a skateboard and or replace the trucks. The process is fairly easy and straight forward. It is most convenient to assemble a skateboard on a work bench such as the ones found at TechShop. Materials needed:
First, with a 3/8 wrench and phillips screwdriver, begin to disassemble your old skateboard (disregard this step if you are setting up a completely new set up). It is important to mark which truck is your back truck and which is your front tuck before removing both from your previous set up. If the trucks are misplaced on the new skateboard, the board will feel as if it is backwards due to the adjusted bushings from the previous set up.
