TRUCKS

Most of the trucks Australias Favorite Skateboard Shop carries can be adjusted to the skaters turning style simply by changing to harder or softer bushings. The exception being Seismic Longboard or Slalom trucks which require replacement of the trucks springs.

Trucks are typically made from aluminum, with hardened steel kingpins and axles, and urethane bushings. Depending on riding style, the skater may want softer bushings for easier turn, harder bushings for more stability, or medium for all around. Size is a factor when choosing a set of trucks. Generally, the axle length of the trucks should be within 1/4" of the width of the deck (slightly larger or smaller o.k.).

Pick a truck that fits as closely as possible. The heights of different trucks also vary. Turning ability and wheel compatibility varies with the height of the truck (ie: higher trucks allow you to use a larger wheel).
