Kingpin for stage 8 Indies
« on: September 07, 2020, 10:00:09 AM »
  • Broke a kingpin on a pair of stage 8 indies
  • Been trying to get it replaced
  • Seems the new newer kingpins have splines.
  • These Kingpins won't fit and don't grip the inside of the baseplate.
  • Anyone have any good ideas out there regarding replacements?

hardware stores usually have a hex head bolt that would work. the only down side is that the threads would be different from skate kingpins so you need to pick up a new nut. also you might not be able to use a standard skate tool to tighten/loosen since the the new nut might be a different size. lucky for me, my local skateshop still stocks the specific kingpin to work for my stage 8s, they aint cheap though running like $4 a pop but if that means i can still run the stage 8s, its a small price to pay. next time im there, ill ask them where they source them and ill pass the info onto you. are you in the states?

Krux down low kingpin is what you probably want. Fit perfectly in stage 8s, fixes the terrible clearance. Try some Ace hi bushings for an extra treat. I'm running my stage 8 146s like that and loving it.
