Park / Street Bushings

A traditional short cone bushing combo (cone/cone) is the most common choice for this type of skating. Most traditional kingpin trucks (like Independent, Polar Bear and so on) have a smaller clearance, which is why we suggest using shorter bushings. A few traditional kingpin trucks have use taller bushings thanks to larger clearance.
