    Angry Thunder trucks have terrible bushings!?

    Just tried my first pair of thunders and I'm pretty bummed. I only tightened them a few rotations and the bushings split open. Has anyone else has this happen?

    u shouldn't tighten your trucks before you break them in a little first! Grab a pair of bones bushigs or something to replace the stock ones, thunders are good trucks.

    Yeah Thunder standards always have had weird bushings, I would email Deluxe and ask them to send you a new pair, they're super chill if you ask nicely, I always get replacements for free

    Thanks for the info dood, I asked them nicely and they're hooking me up with bushings. It's my own fault for tightening before breaking them in, I didn't know that was a giant nono..that's how I've always done it
