Budget-Friendly Truck Upgrade Options

Budget-Friendly Truck Upgrade Options at SK8KINGS

Performance trucks are our top recommendation to racers who want to upgrade their existing gear. We're sensitive to the fact that not everyone's budget is cut out for the high end truck experience -- so we made it a priority to find lower cost options that still offer great performance.

We are stoked to be able to offer and highly recommend our Skennett front / Skandal rear or Skennett front / Seismic rear -- truck upgrades that are big on performance but easy on your wallet.

We offer all of the above with performance tweaks like custom bushing combos and axle spacers included as well as upgrade options like wedging/hardware combos to maximize performance potential of these truck pairs.

Maria,

Are the hangers on the Seismic trucks narrowed? Looks like it from the pics since you have a spacer on it. Still one of my favorite rear trucks.

Gary -- No mods to the Seismic hangers. We use the 105mm hanger. We like the dark green springs for light weight riders and the purple or black springs for heavier riders and/or applications that require greatest stability. De-wedging properly is key too of cousre and we offer the option to order them with a customized de-wedge combo for best performance.
