    • When it comes to preventing wheel bite you may want to add a riser. This will occur during the truck installation process. If you have not started this process, get to step 3 in the Truck Installation guide and return here for your next step.

    • Now that you are just about ready to install your trucks, simply place the riser onto the hardware before the trucks. Return to the Truck Installation guide to finish installing the trucks.

    • Once you have installed your trucks you can tighten your kingpin nut using a 9/16" wrench to prevent wheel bite.

    • Tightening your kingpin will limit your turning ability so that the wheels won't catch on the deck.
