I just got a very nice set of Slalom Pro trucks. The bushings and pivot cups seem to be the wrong colors for these trucks. I was told the bushings are red/orange like Bennett's, then I was told they were black. Does anybody know what the right color is for the bushing and pivots cups?

Thanks!

Reddish-orange I agree. But even these seem to have miss-matching
or maybe was how came out of factory/skate shop.

Probably black piviot caps...

Type in SLALOM PRO TRUCKS in your browser, click search, then click images...
Not easy to find but lots are up there. Even a set with black bushings....
Never know back in the day, who had what, matching what, doing what for what reason [wink] [cool]

Thanks for the killer info. Looks like my bushings and pivot cup have to be replaced, for the right gear on the slalom pro. Thanks again!

I've a set of California Slaloms which were exactly the same but with a wider hanger. Bushings are brick red and pivot cups are black. My hangers had some bad grinds, so I replaced them with a spare set of Slalom Pros. The baseplates for both trucks are identical.

My California Slaloms originally came with red rubber bushes, they certainly weren't urethane. I replaced them with urethane bushes bitd.

You can see the originals in this ad.
