Safety First
Inspect your gear each time before you skate to ensure it is in proper working order.
Be sure to wear your helmet and other protective gear as needed

The most basic maintenance that should be done to keep your Trucks performing
safely and at a high level is to frequently change your kingpins and bushings
Slalom and LDP Trucks are particularly prone to kingpin stress due to the high
frequency turning that they undergo and those kingpins should be swapped out
regularly. Downhill and freeride Trucks would also benefit from a periodic kingpin
swap to keep them performing at there highest level and to ensure safety
You can never do this simple maintenance item to often so it's better
to error on the side of being safe
