    Angry Wtf truck problems

    Didn't notice this until today but my truck nut comes above my axle. This seriously messes up my 50-50s. I am considering sanding down the nut so that it is below the axle. I have thunder 145 lows with bones hardcore 81a bushings. Is there a fix for this? I tried taking apart my truck and putting it back together but that didn't change much.

    Tighten your trucks? That's weird, though, I thought only Tensors had that problem.

    The fix is getting Thunder HI trucks instead of Lows.

    Show us a picture. But yeah, that's a thing.

    The Thunder lows on my secondary board is low enough to interfere with smiths and feebles, maybe, but not 50-50s. it's got Bones in there too.

    Maybe cranking the nut a little might help. Or maybe Bones Bushings don't fit good in lows, or at least thats what I heard

    Damn man sorry to hear that.
    Low trucks are for flip tricks(flat ground).... High trucks are for actual grinding

    Lol well shit how often do low trucks have the kingpin in the way..... It does happen

    I don't know maybe that's just me, I like high trucks. You can grind more because the kingpin isn't in the way after you grind away some of your Trucks

    lows have complete shit kingpin clearance. Its a shame, because I prefer how they behave on turns in comparison to highs for some reason.

    Get some shorter kingpins. OR It might be that you've crushed your bushings. If you like your trucks just get some new bushings and kingpins.
    Kingpins : https://www.warehouseskateboards.com...category=2246|
    Bushings: https://www.warehouseskateboards.com...board-bushings
    they are super cheap.
    But if the trucks are on the out just replace them and suffer through that new truck hell
