uneven trucks or whatever
« on: January 19, 2013, 03:19:28 PM »
I'm riding Thunders right now and i've had them for a while and for some reason only three of my wheels will touch the ground. anyone know the cause so when i get new trucks this won't happen again?

get bones bushings.
This.
And also, how tight do you ride your trucks? Loosening them up might solve the problem.

i've been intending to get Bones bushings.
i loosened my trucks up and they're still uneven. ones hanger is shaved down more than the other so i figured that might be it but wasn't sure so i came here. if getting new bushings doesn't solve it then i'm just never riding Thunders again

Try replacing the bushings and the pivot cups. If you prefer tighter trucks, buy harder bushings instead of cranking them down (overtightening the kingpin and squash and irretrievably deform bushings). Besides Bones, there are tons of other bushing options as well. Maybe try a few and see what works best for you.

If that doesn't solve the problem, take off your wheels and check to make sure you don't have a bent axle. Maybe this isn't a super common problem, but it can and does happen.

sounds like you ride a warped board.

i'm riding a brand new board. i'm positive it's the trucks because one is a bit wonky than the other but the bushings are completely fucked so i was thinking that could be it, too so i came here for opinions.
I'm just gonna get some Bones bushings and if that doesn't help i'll just not buy pre-owned Thunders again.

thanks for all the help responses though
