Bushings are made of polyurethane and determine the steering behavior of your trucks. You can choose between different shapes and duros. The main difference in bushings is the restoring force (rebound). The characteristics and also the color of a bushing can vary according to manufacturer and urethane mixture with the same hardness. The steering characteristics of an truck can be individually adjusted to the various needs of each rider through different bushings and duros.
Here are our recommendations for the optimal bushings adjustment by body weight. The choice of the durometer of a bushing can vary depending on the purpose of use and personal preferences.
