Having problems with a set of Indys...they're so damn wobbly I'm having to tighten the trucks down to the point of no turning so they don't wobble on drop ins. They're fairly new and my other Indys don't have this problem. Do you think its a bushing thing? I'm going to try changing them out. Never had this problem before.

Anybody else have this problem.

im not a tracker trucks fan, but the tracker stimulator bottoms and superball top really works for me. the bones hardcores are good too, but you may have some serious cranking to do.

Sheddie, you riding Trackers? You were an all Indy-man when we rode together. They're both great trucks...Anyway, to the topic I started. I switched out the stock indy bushings that were all squirrely with some other stock indy bushings and they be riding perfect. Carved the snake run all morning and, by God, I'll put my long underwear back on tommorrow and do it again. I love skateboarding!!!!!!!!

sly,

I've put Bones hard whites in all my stage 9s. They work well for me.

Yo Slyde..
Was so bummed that Indy no longer supported the old school bolt pattern...after almost 25 years of being an Indy rider...I switched. found the last couple of sets of Indies I got to be of "less then stellar" quality. The Six Tracks are pretty nice and have a bigger pivot pin, and replacement cups are easy to get. Too bad the Darts only sport the new school pattern, the 149's are a nice set up on a lot of the wider boards running the Dub Con's or Shogo's. And the Tracker name still holds on to the true old school root.

Glad you like the Trackers...I ride one board set up with each and can appreciate both.

I'll check out the bones bushings if these piss out on me.

Shed ;
Pardon to interrupt your conversation with sly but I didn't know that the bones bushings can fit on a tracker truck. Perhaps because both bottom the the upper one are conicals unlike the trackers shape on the base plate. Can you use Bones Bushings on trackers ?

Bones bushings are the shit. They have this built in hardness ring on the top so you can ditch the washer and give your bolt some more space. They also come in three different hardnesses.

Here's something I've wondered about: how does one know which bushings to use? I imagine soft would turn more easily but how much does weight (body) enter in.

For instance, what should I ride: 6 feet tall 150 pounds and love to carve. Bones soft?

I have several sets of Trackers and all have Dart baseplates that are BOTH old and new school pattern.
