Do your longboard trucks squeak?

New longboards can suffer from squeeking when turning. Most people assume it's coming from the bushings. The noise is coming from the pivot cups, which is an indentation on the baseplates of the longboard trucks.

There are a number of remedies including soap, pencil graphite, candlewax and olive oil. To fix, you need to strip down your longboard trucks, put your chosen remedy into the pivot cup, then reassemble the trucks.

  1. Trucks of all sizes and shapes are being advertised and sold primarily by these big-name commercial truck makers. A massive percentage of all commercial truck supplies to both UK and US markets are made by these major companies. Over the years, they have made huge efforts to make their trucks well known worldwide, with a very successful migration to the Asian, African and South American markets. It can be said that commercial trucks have changed, and are still changing, the world as we know it.
