This post will explain the proper way to mount your trucks to your board. The typical trucks which we use in longboarding would be RKP trucks and/or Reverse King Pin Trucks.
If you notice from the photo above the bushing part of the king pin is facing outwards. For an RKP trucks setup on both sides the bushing must be facing outward and not inward.
It is correct that you put your trucks on properly otherwise it can ride funny.
