You cannot deny the superior turning when these two components are combined. Show some appreciation for the worlds best trucks and bushings.

Are Indy's stock bushings that shitty?  I know that buying bushings and putting them in isn't overly expensive or time consuming.. but doing all that then breaking them in, only to have slightly better feel, seems weird.

I never even tried the stock bushings. I put the med Bones straight in.

I did have one bad session last week and switched them out for some Indy aftermarket bushings. I wanted to switch back to the Bones after literally one push.

you may not notice the difference when you put them right in but if you replace the bones bushings for something different thats when you will notice the difference

not at all.  i thought about riding bones but thought to myself, when exactly did indy stock bushings start sucking?  try never.
i know a lot of people swear by bones but once that plastic insert cracks(usually a few months), its a wrap.
if anything, i'd get the khiros with the metal inserts.

I always rode stock Indy bushing in the 90s. Started skating again and hear all this crap about the stock ones sucking now, so I got aftermarket Indy bushings. The aftermarkets work fine IMHO and fit the trucks perfectly. I kept the stocks as backups.

Don't plan to try Bones. Don't like the idea of bushings with hard plastic inserts, nor do I like the idea of have to lose a washer or forcing bushings to fit because they're not the same shape/size as the stock ones.

I never even tried the stock bushings. I put the med Bones straight in.

I did have one bad session last week and switched them out for some Indy aftermarket bushings. I wanted to switch back to the Bones after literally one push.

Its not how bad the other bushings are, its how amazing the Bones are. The way they flick back and re-centre your board makes skating feel so much better. Dropping back in at an angle and straightening out before you hit the flat, landing off ledges or just carving threw leaves down the street. Shit feels good.

Like I said, I had one bad session and blamed it on something. The Indy bushings weren't bad, they just didnt feel anywhere near as good as the Bones.

And I skate with both washers and the nut flush with the kingpin. First time I skated them I only used the top washer but I think I prefer them with both on.

I started skating about 13 years ago and being new to it I had no idea what trucks where good and what wasn't. So after trying Grind King, then Tensor, then Royal, then Krux. I stopped on Thunder, which felt amazing compared to that other crap. Well Krux are good to. But then one day I went to buy new trucks and my shop didn't have any Thunders so I decided to try Indys for the first time. I never have skated anything else. So last year I tried my first set of Bones wheels and holy shit they are the best wheels so I hear hype about the bushings and try them on my Indys and fuck its the best combo ever. They fit perfectly you don't have to smash em down and I have never cracked the core either and I am a 180lb man.

i remember way...way...back when thunder had the skull, not the lightning bolt...they were really close to indys but came w. super cush's stock which made them rad. 

Indy stock bushings suck...they're super dead and my board often turns into the old boomer-board which when you kick does a perfect circle right back to me....

I like the hard bones bushings but ridden pretty loose....

then you take pictures of them, and send an email to bones.

they sent me 3 sets of bushings good for 3 sets of trucks in return.

Got some indy 149s with bones medium bushings. For both the bottom bushings the urethane is starting to muffin top over the core, but they still feel fine and it hasn't really effected the way they ride, theyre still super responsive, so I'm gonna keep skating them. Hopefully I can squeeze another month or two outta them.

I tried my friends board and he had some indys with doh doh bushings on it, man did that shit turn and feel weird. It almost felt like I was riding a completely different brand of trucks. I'm not going back.

Does anyone tried hard bones bushings in the new indy hollows? (since the total height for a standard indy is 53mm and the forged hollows are 51.5mm).

Riding loose Indies with the soft bones, best combination. I rode the medium before and was happy with them, but i am more happy now.

On one of my cruisers i have Thunders that i got from a friend. They felt bad, so i put in some soft bones but yeah, they still suck. Gotta replace them shits.
