Ok, so here is another thing we are going to do with the blog. Share info and quick tech tips. One of the most asked questions out there is "Why are my trucks squeaking?"
Well rather than tell you that the coefficient of friction between the composite pivot cup material and the aluminum pivot point of the hanger in the reverse kingpin orientation causes squeaking when the parts have not been sufficiently worn.
I will tell you that a little bar of Ivory soap goes a long way. Shave off some soap dust using a butter knife. Sprinkle some of that dust into the pivot cup and "smoosh" a little around where the bushings seat. Reassemble the truck and guess what? No more squeaks!
This has been a public service announcement brought to you by Stoked. Lol. Hope it helps guys.
