Shorty's Black Pivot Cup - Fits All Trucks (set of 2)
Shortys Skateboards Single Black Pivot Cup 1 Piece
Pivot cups are a small cushion (usually a "cup" shape) between the pivot point of your truck’s hanger and the baseplate itself. Their job is to help your truck turn about the baseplate's intended angle, and can prevent unwanted movement in the truck- you'll notice them most when your truck is leaning from side-to-side.
Bearing spacers are small metal cylinders that fit into a skateboard wheel between the bearings. Their purpose is to reduce the weight distributed to each bearing, which can make your turns smoother and more stable and also extend the life of your bearings. If youve ever blown out a bearing in the middle of a session, you know its the worst.
Bearing spacers are cheap and a great investment. One set will last you the rest of your life!

3 Hardnesses: Hard Bushing: 96A, Medium Bushing: 91A, Soft Bushing: 81A
When you turn a normal truck, the hanger web puts pressure on one side of each bushing (top and bottom). This squeezes that side and pushes the other side of each bushing away from the kingpin. We call this a single action bushing because only one side of the bushing works for you at a time.
The HardCore insert in the center of BONES bushings connects the two sides of each bushing together by bonding them to the HardCore insert. When the hanger web squeezes one side of a HardCore bushing, that side of the bushing reacts just like a normal bushing, but the chemical bond between the HardCore and the cushion keep the bushing from being squeezed out the other side. It actually increases the resistance to turning because it is held in place by the HardCore insert. This means basically that BOTH sides of the BONES HardCore Bushing are resisting your turning force. That’s why we call BONES Bushings the first double action truck bushings.
