Skateboard truck bushings are the rubbery rings that fit around the kingpin on your skateboard trucks. Typically made of polyurethane, the bushings assist in allowing your board to turn and pivot smoothly. There should be two bushings on each truck (four total). The top bushing, which is on the kingpin above the hanger, helps the skateboard truck turn smoothly. The bottom bushing, which is on the kingpin between the hanger and the baseplate, can be tightened or loosened depending on how responsive you want your trucks to be. Therefore, when there is a need of truck bushings replacement, do not ignore them. Go for it with FX Mobile Mechanic Services Omaha.
Stiffer bushings will result in a more resistant board, which can be an advantage when performing tricks. For easy movement when cruising or carving the streets, looser bushings are a good option. Bushing tightness depends on each rider's preferences, and bushings can be easily adjusted to suit your needs. Skateboard truck bushings are all the same size, and will fit any skateboard, longboard, or cruiser.
To keep your skateboard firing on all cylinders, you'll need to do regular maintenance to your trucks. You may also want to adjust your trucks depending on how loose or tight you like to skate. For ease and simplicity, opt for truck bushings replacement.
FX MOBILE MECHANIC SERVICES OMAHA OFFERS THE FOLLOWING TRUCK BUSHINGS REPLACEMENT SERVICES FOR OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS
When you are ready to remove your skateboard bushings, we will need tools. We always use a regular socket wrench. Find one that matches the head of the kingpin in your trucks.The kingpin is the large bolt that runs through the center of your skateboard trucks (the red line in the photo shows the location of the kingpin inside your trucks). You are going to want a skate tool that fits on the nut on the end of your kingpin.
disassemble your skateboard trucks- removing the nut on the end of the kingpin. keep disassembling your skateboard trucks and take off the washer underneath. Make sure that you keep all of these parts - you don't want to lose any of them.
You should eventually come to the hangar - that's the large metal part that holds the skateboard truck axle. This part might be a little tricky to take off - mostly because it might be stuck. Simply pull it out of its socket, and then slide it up and off the kingpin. Continue taking apart your skateboard trucks piece by piece, being careful not to pull too hard and bend or break anything.
Now, take a look at the bushings, and see what they look like. Whether you are replacing your bushings or not, you should take each part and clean it up. You can even take the kingpin out of the baseplate and clean it as well. Feel free to replace any parts that you would like to. If you are installing new bushings, of course you can throw the old bushings away.
