More and more Trampa Builds outthere
Wanna make sure everybody knows that they are small bushings inside of the Springtrucks which needet to replace from time to time.
Replacement from Trampa is super cheap, different sizes available. I never needet others then 2 and 2.5mm.
Dont wait to long, my expierence is that on the driven Truck they can worn out fast :
This one is really bad worn out, it splittet into two parts, now the round bushing part moves out of the Hanger and you got alot of backlash!
Your Hanger can get damaged and even more important you can get some very bad speed wobbles …
so dont be lazy and take care about this little parts :
Remove Countersunk Screws from underside of Truck, 3mm Hex :
Remove Adjuster Screws from upperside, 4mm Hex :
Use a clamp to compress one side of the Truck :
Remove the first spring with dampa :
Decompress and remove second one :
Now Remove the Kingpin, Titanium 5mm Hex or Steel 4mm Hex and 10mm wrench :
Take out the old bushings from the Baseplate and the Hanger and insert new ones.
I use a piece of Aluminium Tube to prevent that a worn out bushing can move out of place. Its optional, you dont need this for rebuild. 8mm ID, 34mm Length
Assemble again with Kingpin and washers(one on top, one on end) :
Place one Spring, fix from underside with the countersunk bolt :
Same procedure backwards with the clamp :
Before tighten the Adjuster from top make sure the Dampas alignment is good :
I tight them down until the backlash of the Dampa inside the Spring is gone :
Not more then equal with Deck hight :
