Squeaky trucks are an audibly annoying problem that can be easily remedied by simple application of household soap to the pivot cup of a set of skateboard trucks.

In this guide we will learn how to take off the hanger of the trucks by removing the nut, washer, and bushing spacer before it. Next, we will apply a certain amount of soap to the pivot cup to eliminate squeaking. Finally, we will reassemble the trucks and tune them to preference for a smooth and squeak-free riding experience.

  2. Begin by taking off the kingpin nut with your crescent wrench. Alternatively, Standard kingpin nut size is 3/8" so a wrench of equal size should work. The kingpin nut has been screwed off in the picture.

    Standard kingpin nut is 5/8” wrench, not 3/8” which is standard for hardware bolts.

    • Take off the washer between the kingpin nut and the white rubber bushing. Note the direction the washer was facing (Concave side towards the board or away) as it will need to be installed back the same way.

    • Pull off the white rubber bushing and set it down next to the washer.

    • Pull the hanger (horizontal metal bar attached to the wheels) out of the pivot cup and off of the kingpin bolt and set it aside.

    • Insert the hanger back onto the kingpin and into the pivot cup and work it around a little bit to spread the soap

    • Put the white rubber bushing back on the kingpin bolt, followed by the washer.

    • After you have added on the washer, screw on the kingpin nut and tighten to preference. The tighter the nut the stiffer the turning capability, so this is personal preference. Usually I find that screwing it on until 1 or 2 threads of the kingpin bolt are visible above the nut is sufficient.

    • If you find that you have put too much soap in the bearings and the board is no longer stable when standing on it, you can clean out the pivot cup by following the above instructions to remove the hardware to get to the pivot cup and cleaning it out with a paper towel or other material.
