I've noticed with a few sets of trucks now that the response can be different turning left and right. so you get the front truck turning hard going left and the back turns hard going right (or…Click here for the full story

I'm after sabre f-type (purple) or similar bushes. (currently green on sabres but they'r not loose enough)  I'd like to play with a few different setups so if you have few sets let me know.

I live in lidcombe though I'm moving to randwick next week. Probably be best if we met up as I still need to make a decision on what I'm going to do but definitely keen to move one truck set on. I'm free tomorrow morning and on friday through the weekend. My number is 0432815151

If you are interested I'm looking to have something like this done. I'm looking to have a lot more done that just milling the hangers down. The bushing seat will be refaced and theres also the issue of compatible spacers and longer nuts.

Ben I've decided not to sell the 5.0 and the extra randal hanger - would you be interested in a 4.3 bennett + randal  combo instead? (though if you are still very keen on the 5.0 I'll consider it). The reason for this is that I've decided to send the 5.0 off to be milled down along with my other hanger.

Sorry I now have plans on Thursday. Unless you are willing to come by in the evening. Are you available tomorrow or friday morning? The weekends in the afternoon are also fine.

Yep they still avaliable but I won't be able to give them to you till Thursday. If you'd like for 15 bucks more I can give you the other 125 hanger if you want to try a 50/35 rkp split.

Oh I had almost forgotten. The there is a bit of damage underneath the bennett baseplate -nothing bad but I'll explain. I changed the kingpin to a randal one to reduce the amount of bushing destruction the stock kingpin does. I tried to use epoxy to make a kind of putty to hold the kingpin (the stock one has ridges holding it in place) in place but it didn't work and I ended up scrapping it all off and buying loctite blue to hold it instead. So it has cosmetic damage to the area around the kingpin...but you'll never see it and it doesn't affect the way the truck works.

ahk, hah yeh our neighbours have 2 newborns and from what i can hear from the crying is they consume a lot of time to look after... all worth it though. when you say tidied up did you take some more off the hangers to lighten them up? maybe when or IF you get free time you should come roll with the bomb squad, you can get everyones opinion on them.
