    Graphite powder will work for a little bit. It's a dry lubricant, but it never stay's in the pivot cups and the other squeaky truck parts...

    I've got a quick fix for you that WILL last:

    -take the trucks apart, hangers all the way off.
    -clean'em, 'cause they're gritty and skank.
    -here comes the trick: put a drop of dishwashing soap in the pivot cup, then rub your finger on another drop and just lightly coat the bushing seats on your hanger (the flat part where your bushings sit).
    -put it all back together.

    No squeaks for a long time. Done.
    Yes, I'm compensating for something!

    Well the first step you take in repairing squeaky trucks is to stop being a whiny little pussbag and get the fuck over it.

    ^^^ hahaha, i just got a new pair of theeves and they are squeaky as fuck, i also want to get rid of this sqeeking, although not at the expense of doing anything stupid.

    will it just go away after breaking them in good ? i seen the shard of bar soap idea, which sounds like it'd work good.

    its not a big fuckign problem, its just:.... no squeaky > squeaky

    New bushings and pivot cups are more suction-like when it rubs against the metal, so it makes that squeak. I think it's the coating that makes it sticky.

    I don't mind a little squeak since it lets me know when the board is starting to turn.
