If you’re looking to build your own complete longboard, then you’ll need longboard trucks. Longboard truck hangers are wider than skateboard trucks to accommodate the difference in deck size, which means that longboard trucks and skateboard trucks cannot be used interchangeably.
A longboard truck is sometimes known as a ‘reverse kingpin’. This is because the axle is on the other side of the kingpin compared to a standard truck. In addition to this, longboard trucks also tend to feature softer bushings to allow for easier turning. However, this can differ with downhill longboards, which require stiffer bushings to stabilise the longboard at high speeds.
